SOS Rhino : In the News : Endangered rhino rescued in Borneo

Endangered rhino rescued in Borneo



KOTA KINABALU: Wildlife officials have rescued a critically-endangered Borneo Sumatran Rhinoceros and transferred it to a reserve after a two-week operation in the east coast of Sabah.

The male rhino was found wandering at an oil palm plantation near a forest on Aug 5 when the Sabah Wildlife Department launched the rescue.

“It was obvious that the rhino was injured to some degree as it had left its forest for the flat terrain of an oil palm plantation,” Dr Senthilvel Nathan, the department’s chief field veterinarian, said on Saturday.
