SOS Rhino : In the News :  Natureís Walk of Fame
 

Natureís Walk of Fame

 

Radio Netherlands
11 February 2003

For many centuries the banks of the Kinabatangan River in Malaysian Borneo were undoubtedly nature's 'walk of fame'. Rainforest 'celebrities' such as the orang-utan, the proboscis monkey and the enormous estuarine crocodile would drop by regularly to leave their footprints along the floodplains. Even the legendary Sumatran rhino has been known to leave its tracks here, though it was always the 5000kg Asian elephants that made the biggest impression. More recently though, the introduction of palm oil plantations has fragmented these animals' habitat. It has begun to seem that the golden era for some of nature's biggest 'stars' may already be over.
