Last Male Sumatran Rhino In Malaysia Dies


“Tam’s death underscores how critically important the collaborative efforts driving the Sumatran Rhino Rescue project are,” said WWF Wildlife Practice Leader, Margaret Kinnaird.

As tragic as Tam’s death is, it’s a wakeup call to find more animals in the wild, says Kinnaird. The good news is that they succeeded in capturing a new female last year, named Pahu. Her transfer to a new breeding facility in Kelian was so important, she was provided with a police escort and mudslide-clearing bulldozers.

One female in Malaysia and about 80 individuals scattered across Indonesia are all that remain of the species.
