In order to understand the demographics, behavior,
and nutrition of this rhino species, team members collect survey
data using GPS integrated PDAs and customized data collection
Data such as rhino footprints have been found, photographed
and cast in plaster. Also the locations of food sources, mud
and salt licks are noted.
All of this data is critical to the rhinos distribution and status.
Population demographics will be key when making further wildlife
To ensure survival of this species, conservation efforts must combine
community outreach programs with intense research and vigorous
protection efforts. Accordingly, in Tabin Wildlife Reserve SOS
Rhino’s Rhino Protection Units
directly engage villagers and oil palm plantation owners and employees in the
effort to protect the rhinos through SOS Rhino’s Community Outreach Program
