The Hornless Rhinoceros Book

ARP is pleased to support Robin W. Radcliffe in a children's book venture, 'The Hornless Rhinoceros'. 10,000 copies of the book have been distributed free of charge to Indonesian children living close to Javan rhinos in Ujung Kulon National Park and Sumatran rhinos in Way Kambas National Park. The children of Indonesia represent the future change in beliefs and attitudes towards rhinos, and the book program hopes to improve the future for both Javan and Sumatran rhinoceroses, as well as for their closest friend and ally, the people of Southeast Asia. ARP has some of these books available for purchase for $25.

Critically endangered Sumatran Rhino to receive artificial insemination

Experts in Indonesia have started to artificially inseminate Sumatran rhinoceros in an effort to boost the birth rate of thecritically endangered species.

The technique, believed to be the first in the world for rhinoceros, is being introduced at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Lampung,Sumatra. Just recently, the sanctuary recorded the birth of a naturally conceived Sumatran rhinoceros.

Four-month-old Andatu -- a male Sumatran rhinoceros -- is only the fourth to be born in a breeding facility in more than a century.

With less than 200 left in the wild, the Sumatran species is the world's most endangered rhinoceros due to it being killed for itshorns and its natural habitat destroyed by plantations.

Borneo Rhino Alliance's executive director, Dr John Payne, said: "We believe very strongly that the future of this species lies in captive management in places like Way Kambas, where you keep the rhinos under natural conditions, within fences where they get the best global standards from dedicated keepers, the best diet, the best veterinary care, the best international assistance where needed to boost the birth rate.

Vietnam snubs SA on key rhino poaching agreement

Vietnam has failed to sign a law-enforcement and biodiversity
agreement with South Africa aimed at curbing escalating levels of
rhino poaching.
The memorandum of understanding – which has been under discussion
between to the two countries since September last year – was due to be
signed during an international biodiversity conference which ends on
Friday in Hyderabad, India.

But South Africa's department of environmental affairs confirmed to
the Mail & Guardian this week the signing had been called off, with
spokesperson Roopa Singh claiming Vietnam's relevant government
minister was "not available" to sign it.

Singh said discussions with Vietnam would continue in the hope the
memorandum could be signed before the end of the year.

The news came as South Africa announced that poaching levels had
reached a record high, with 455 rhinos killed since the beginning of
the year, eclipsing last year's figure of 448.
