About this deal

Efforts are also afoot in Malaysia to save the Sumatran rhino after the last male, Kertam, died in 2019. He was then moved to the highly surveilled Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia, Kenya, which was a last-ditch effort to encourage procreation with the remaining females of his subspecies.

He describes a joyless life for all the animals with him, before being rescued and brought back home. The author explains her subtle uses of lettering that can be seen in the lighter parts of the illustrations.

A poignant and telling look at human intervention to save animals where good intent can be misdirected and have poor outcomes. Elsewhere, outlandish yet pioneering plans to resurrect a version of the woolly mammoth, not seen for 4,000 years, continue to contentiously take shape. Tourists got emotional, because they knew they were laying hands on a singular creature, a primordial giant about to slide off into the void.

The illustrations of the city incorporate quotes from advertising and environmental speeches translated into different languages.

On the horizon, the sun was struggling to make itself seen over the sharp double peaks of Mount Kenya.
