Park authorities in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park have compiled an incredible video which features footage of more than 30 Javan rhinos — nearly the entire population of this critically endangered species.
Executive Director of the International Rhino Foundation, Dr. Susie Ellis, said in a Mongabay.com interview that the video is a “peek into the secret lives of Javan rhinos”.
