Ajit, congrats on having your spotting featured in the blog for World Rhino day! http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/3204789...
Hi Ajit, you could add your amazing spot of Indian Rhino to the mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1284...Happy World Rhino Day!
Once the most widespread of Asian rhinoceroses, the Javan rhinoceros ranged from the islands of Java and Sumatra, throughout Southeast Asia, and into India and China. The species is critically endangered, with only one known population in the wild, and no individuals in captivity. It is possibly the rarest large mammal on earth, with a population of as few as 40 in Ujung Kulon National Park at the western tip of Java in Indonesia. A second population in Cat Tien National Park in Vietnam was confirmed as extinct in 2011.Wonder if someone has spotted one recently if they are all truly gone.
this is a good photo
