WWF-Malaysia is working on a five-year project to save this endangered species by protecting its natural habitat, reducing poaching and increasing research efforts.
The Rhino Rescue project also aims to gain a better understanding of the ecological, biological and spatial needs of the Sumatran rhino. Knowledge gained from this study will then be used to develop specific recommendations relating to Sumatran rhino conservation and other wildlife, which will hopefully be incorporated into forest management plans.
