This department separated from the forestry department over a decade ago to ensure maximum protection of wildlife with reduced conflict of interest. The department built facilities at Sepilok in the late 80’s that resulted in the first breeding between pairs of rhinos. They later received GEF funding for survey work in Sabah and later hosted the first population viability assessment for the Sumatran rhino in 1995. The wildlife department has been working with SOS Rhino and WWF since 2000 with an increased focus on the Sumatran rhinoceros.
