At this critical juncture, Mongabay is launching a special reporting initiative aimed at raising awareness about the Sumatran rhino and chronicling successes and setbacks in local and international efforts to save the species from extinction.
Sumatran rhinos are among the rarest and most endangered animals on earth. The species’ wild population numbers no more than 80, fragmented into small sub-populations in Sumatra and Borneo. Another nine live in captivity in Indonesia and Malaysia, where researchers hope they can contribute to the long-term survival of their species.
