postheadericon Rare Sumatran Rhino captured by camera trap

After running camera traps almost continuously over two years we have just captured our first photos of the critically endangered Sumatran Rhino!! These two images of a young female rhino confirm the continued presence of this species within Sabah. However, the fact that these remain to be the only photos we have obtained, and that this is only the second time a rhino has been photographed in this region, highlights the severity of the threat to the rhinos’ continued existence.
