About the Javan Rhino

The Javan rhino is one of the most threatened of WWF’s flagship species with as few as 40 remaining in Ujung Kulon National Park. Plus, WWF and the International Rhino Foundation (IRF) confirmed the extinction of the Javan rhinoceros in Vietnam on October 25, 2011.

WWF is working with the government, the International Rhino Foundation, the Indonesian Rhino Foundation, the Asian Rhino Project, the IUCN/SSC Rhino Specialist Group and local communities to protect these animals from poaching, to monitor the population, and establish a second population through translocation.

World Wildlife FundHope for Javan Rhinos

There are as few as 40 Javan rhinos left in the world, making it one of the rarest large mammal species. Poaching, disease, and the very real threat of a tsunami or a volcanic eruption could wipe out the entire population in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon Park.

Please help WWF save this critically endangered species. Your donation will help fund urgent Javan rhino projects this year—including an ambitious translocation plan—that could make the vital difference between survival and extinction.
