The last three remaining Sumatran Rhinos in Malaysia are at the Tabin Wildlife Reserve in Sabah. The last of their species, they are in the constant care of The Borneo Rhino Alliance (BORA), who responsible in the ongoing fight to save the Sumatran Rhino in Malaysia from extinction.
According to a press statement from Malaysian Documentary Association (MyDocs), BORA has been working with advanced reproductive technology experts to produce a rhino embryo, a first for the Sumatran Rhino species. However, time is running out for the Sumatran Rhinos in Malaysia and BORA and they need financial help to sustain the project.
