Time is running short to save this species from extinction
Thousands of Sumatran rhinos once roamed throughout Southeast Asia. But in the past decade, their numbers have dwindled to fewer than 80. If we don’t act now, we could lose this species forever.
Decades of poaching and habitat loss have cut the number of Sumatran rhinos to just 80, who cling to survival in remote populations on two Indonesian islands. Their biggest threat now is isolation, and the odds of adult rhinos finding compatible mates in the wild are dwindling.
