PRESS RELEASE - BORNEO, MALAYSIA
SOS RHINO AND WWF MALAYSIA COLLABORATE ON CONSERVATION GOALS

May 15, 2001

SOS Rhino and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Malaysia have recently agreed to collaborate in working toward the common goal of wildlife conservation in Sabah, in particular the Sumatran rhinoceros and Asian elephant, and to assist the Sabah Wildlife Department in achieving conservation goals for these species.

Their collaboration will include joint training, the sharing of information, equipment, and staff resources, and the exchange of regular progress reports and communications. SOS Rhino and WWF will work together to raise awareness among the public and other organizations through various means about the conservation needs of wildlife in Sabah.

By such means they trust that other wildlife, both plants and animals, will benefit from the attention given to these flagship species, and that these benefits will accrue for the future enjoyment of the people of Sabah and the world.

Dr. Nan Schaffer, president of SOS Rhino, said, "We are fortunate to be able to assist the Sabah Wildlife Department and WWF in their work to preserve the ecology and wildlife. We want to help them to make a difference."
