The Sumatran rhinoceros stands as one of the world's most critically endangered animals. With their current population standing at less than 50 individuals, the Sumatran rhino faces imminent extinction. But here comes the ray of hope, all 25 kg of it.
In a significant conservation milestone, a Sumatran rhino calf was born in Indonesia's western island of Sumatra. This calf is the second Sumatran rhino born in Indonesia in 2023. With their population on the brink of extinction, this new birth is a tremendous development, a positive addition to the remaining individuals.
The new male Sumatran rhino calf was born to Delilah, a seven-year-old female, at the Way Kambas National Park in Lampung province in Sumatra. The father is a Sumatran rhino named Harapan, who was born in the Cincinnati Zoo in the US in 2006. Harapan is the last Sumatran rhino to be repatriated to Indonesia. This means, at present, the entire population of this species is located within Indonesia.
