A new and rare footage of Javan Rhino (Rhinoceros sondaicus) seen in Ujung Kulon national park around end of May 2020. Looks healthy, alive and having fun.
Ujung Kulon National park is the only remaining natural habitat of Javan Rhino, with total population increasing every year.
A great testament of how partnership at all level; from grassroot to the highest places, from a farmer family living just outside the national park to a family supporter from halfway across the globe, can actually work hand in hand partnering with the Indonesian government in saving this critically endangered species from extinction.
Our generation is defined by the legacy we will leave behind for our next generation; Javan rhino is one of them.
This is a monumental task of our generation and we are not even halfway from finishing this marathon. Let’s continue our work and strengthen our partnership, so we can see them again living and thriving in their natural habitat.
The video was taken at an undisclosed location when our YABI – TNUK Rhino Protection Unit was conducting patrol and survey inside the national park.
