a trace or remnant of something that is disappearing
or no longer exists.

This African rhino may be one of the last vestiges of

African/Asian rhinos which numbered

around 500,000 rhinos in Africa and Asia

at the start of the twentieth century.

This number had plummeted to

a mere 70,000 by the 1970s.

Fast forward another 50 years and this number

has been again decimated to

just 27,000 rhinos in the wild,

mainly due to poaching

and loss  of habitat.
