Deep within Indonesian forests there are Sumatran rhinos, but not many.
The species is so rare that even scientists and rangers who’ve dedicated their lives to their protection have often never seen one in the wild.
Estimates suggest there are fewer than 80 individuals, scattered across 10 small subpopulations. Given this, it is hardly surprising to know that natural breeding opportunities are rare.
With support from the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary however, breeding is taking place. Two new Sumatran calves have been born since 2012, and with new expansion work ongoing,
we hope more will be on their way soon.
Sumatran rhinos are #OnTheEdge
of survival, but the Sanctuary is bringing hope for this species.
