ABIONA: I know, I know.
I miss him too.
This is Lufutuko.
- Tuko for short.
- [ELEPHANT TRUMPETS.]
Her name is Chitogna for "the one who survives.
" Which is exactly what she does.
Survive.
We found her 30 years ago, standing by her family who had been illegally poached for the ivory in their tusks.
Since then, she's lived here at our conservation facility.
With one other elephant.
[TUKO BELLOWS.]
We've tracked their whereabouts with these monitoring collars.
Sadly, yesterday, one of the collars stopped reporting.
Losing Tumaini means that Tuko is now the last African elephant in existence.
She's the last survivor of her species.
We said this day would come 20 years ago.
But the world did not listen.

- Dad, I've got it.
And why would I want to let my line out? Don't I want to bring the fish in? That's a big fish, honey.
You're gonna want to tire it out first.
Otherwise it might snap your line and escape.
This fish is not going to escape from me.
Sometimes it's okay to take advice from other people, sweetheart.
You know what? We're gonna try it again.
This time you can use my lucky lure.
- That's lucky? - My dad thought so.
And his dad before him.
