I have recreated a scene in real life that occurs more than it should. As soon as I have heard the news that the last male white rhino died, I paid tribute to this and decided to make a build to raise awareness for this issue, and show people how devastating the effects of poaching is. Elephants and rhinos are the primary targets, and their numbers are rapidly dwindling. The evidence is right in front of you. Extinction is real.

The last white male rhino died last month, that marks the extinction of a rhino species. And yet it is still an issue - the numbers of elephants and rhinos continue to dwindle due to high demands of ivory, and not many people even know this problem exists.

I was largely motivated to build this project when I heard the news of the white rhino, and decided to recreate a scene that occurs more than it should in real life. I hope this brings in the appeal factor and generate sympathy in those viewing. And even if you couldn't help much, you could at least try convincing those around you (or yourself) who purchase ivory ornaments to stop purchasing these items, because after all the root cause of poaching is the high demands for ivory. And the concept of extinction because of human's greed for some fancy ornaments is just incredulous to me.





Thanks to loicvdb for the renders! Also thanks to Lekosa1 for making some dead grass schematics for me to paste around.
