Rhino "baby boom" on Java


The extremely endangered Java rhino in Indonedia may have had a population boost in the last few months. Scientists tracking the species (by looking for its footprints) have found evidence of four calves walking alongside their parents in different parts of Ujong Kulon National Park. Non one has seen this much evidence of rhino breeding on Java in 40 years. Estimates put the Java rhino population at as many as 57 animals, so every successful breeding counts.
