JAKARTA, September 21 (Online Int’l): Two extremely rare Javan rhinoceros calves were found in an Indonesian national park, increasing hopes for the future of one of the world’s most endangered mammals.
The rhino calves — a female named Helen and male called Luther — were seen with their mothers in footage taken from nearly 100 camera traps installed in Ujung Kulon national park between March and August, authorities said in a statement on Sunday.
On the westernmost tip of Java in Banten province, Ujung Kulon is the last remaining wild habitat for Javan rhinos. After years of population decline, the arrival of the new calves brings the total number of the rare mammals to 74.
