    A wonderful bit of conservation news from Indonesia.

    There remains hope as long as there is captive and wild born individuals and small numbers about. Remember that the Jawan rhinos have been in similar straits for decades now and currently their situation is going for a second sanctuary to rehouse some of the Ujung Kulon animals!!! So, what may have happened there, can allow for the Sumatrans' rebound!

    Even a slight glimmer for the Kalimantan - Indonesia harrisoni (10-20?), not to speak of the Sumatran ssp. on Sumatera (60-80?).

    Rumour has it … she has been mated. No conclusive results, just first good tidings … there.

    Out of interest, do you know by which male?- though of course it doesn't make much difference.;)
