Jay Mazoomdaar’s The Age Of Endlings is a book that attempts to give form to this loss, to the battles being waged at human-nature borders…He uses his journeys, he admits, to illustrate the loneliness of the last of a kind, what he calls the Endlings.
—Padmaparna Ghosh, “Book review: The Age Of Endlings,” Mint, July 1, 2016
Unfortunately, there is no end of endlings. One of the world’s three surviving northern white rhinos will soon become an endling, as will one of the thirty surviving vaquita porpoises, down from sixty just last year.
