Javan Rhino – This scarce animal is one of the rhino species with fewer than 60 animals surviving in only two known locations: Indonesia and in Vietnam. Though once widespread throughout Asia, by the 1930’s was nearly hunted to extinction in Malaysia, India, Burma and Sumatra. It was poached for its horn. Even with all the conservation efforts, the Javan rhinoceros’ chance of survival is small: the population is reduced, hence there are risks of disease and inbreeding.

The Javan rhinoceros or lesser one-horned rhinoceros is a member of the family Rhinocerotidae and one of five extant rhinoceroses.
