The eventual plan for capture and captive keeping and breeding of Javan rhinos seems that offer some hope for saving the species from extinction. This rhino species is more closely related to Indian rhino - the species who florish in captivity, not to the Sumatran rhino - who proved bad captive. The population of Javans anyway most probably will extinct owning to current trend; they can be still killed by poachers; there is not much wild place left on Java etc. Why should not be tried with captive breeding? Or at least capturing individuals who are not related, eg. 20 founders (if possible). Last captive Javan rhino, as I read on Wikipedia died in Adelaide zoo in 1907, but husbandry from that time has improved a lot. What can be done with such project, who should first initiate this? EAZA & AZA to the Indonesian Government and IUCN? Please help to save this species! Comment, suggest, initiate, communicate to the Competent authorities?
