  • Among mammalian species cited as endangered by the World Conservation Union (IUCN), the United States Department of the Interior (USDI), and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), the Sumatran rhinoceros ( Dicerorhinus sumatrensis ) is one of the most threatened. Surviving populations are dwindling rapidly due to heavy poaching and habitat conversion (Fig. 1). On Sumatra alone the rhinoceros population has declined by more than half from 420… CONTINUE READING
