09/01/2015 THE SUMATRAN RHINO HAS GONE EXTINCT IN THE MALAYSIAN WILD

According to a new study, the Sumatran rhino is now considered extinct in the wild in Malaysia. Sumatran rhinos have not been found in Malaysia since 2007, and what are considered to be the last two female rhinos in the Malaysian Borneo were captured and placed into breeding facilities in 2011 and 2014. Researchers estimate that there are now fewer than 100 Sumatran rhinos left in the wild, which are distributed among three populations on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. In order to save the species, researchers suggest that safe regions be implemented where the rhinos can breed, otherwise known as intensive management zones, and place isolated rhinos into these areas so that they can reproduce safely. While Asian governments have approved of these zones in 2013, the researchers say they have yet to establish them.
