Sumatran Rhino Population In A State Of Ruin

(RHINOS/WILDLIFE CONSERVATION) In the 1980s, there were estimated to be 800 Sumatran rhinos left in the wild. Nowadays, that number could be as low as 30--no thanks to poaching and habitat loss.

The situation has become so dire, conservationists will need to start capturing wild Sumatran rhinos to breed them and boost the species' captive population.
