It’s only April and Melissa Singleton has nearly finished the 1,245km @ForRangers Ol Pejeta #VirtualUltra. With the support of her husband Brad and daughter Zahra, Melissa has maintained a dedicated routine that has left her with just 65kms to go.
A few years ago, she visited Ol Pejeta and met Sudan, which played a huge part in her desire to participate in the #marathon and do what she could to raise money for #rhino conservation.

As a Conservancy, we fully believe in the active participation of children in conservation. This is the only way to ensure conservation efforts are sustainable as well as providing an important channel for imparting values of environmental stewardship to the next generation.
Last month, the @KeForestService donated 400 tree seedlings that we used to facilitate tree planting days in Weruini and Tharua Primary Schools as well as Lechugu Secondary School.

It is with great sadness that Ol Pejeta Conservancy and the Dvůr Králové Zoo announce that Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhino, age 45, died at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya on March 19th, 2018 (yesterday). #SudanForever#TheLoneBachelorGone#Only2Left
Sudan was being treated for age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. His condition worsened significantly in the last 24 hours; he was unable to stand up and was suffering a great deal.
