  • Sumatran Rhino Goes Extinct in Malaysia as Lone Survivor Dies

Once found as far away as eastern India and throughout Malaysia, the Sumatran rhino has been nearly wiped out, with fewer than 80 left anywhere, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

The Sumatran rhinoceros is extinct in Malaysia after the country's last species succumbed to cancer on Saturday.

Margaret Kinnaird, wildlife practice leader for WWF International, told National Geographic at the time: "Tam's death underscores how critically important the collaborative efforts driving the Sumatran Rhino Rescue project are".

'Its death was a natural one, and the immediate cause has been categorised as shock.

According to Tuuga, she died due growing pressure of a tumor into the bladder Tuuga said the move to preserve the carcass is for it to be exhibited at the Sabah Museum to provide information to the public on the existence of the species in Malaysia, especially in Sabah. Tam also had lived in the same nature reserve with Iman on Borneo island in Malaysia's Sabah state.

Malaysia's last male Sumatran rhino in captive died in May this year and Iman's death now leaves just a small number of surviving rhinos in neighboring Indonesia.

Conservationists estimate that only around 30 to 80 Sumatran rhinos survive, meaning the species has now nearly disappeared from the wild. The species has already traveled from Asia to India, but its numbers have dropped considerably due to deforestation and poaching.

2 rhino species can be found in Africa today.

The rhino, a female named Iman, suffered from uterine cancer, officials said.

Malaysia also had a breeding program for the species, but so far, the program has failed.

Tuuga said the egg cells which were harvested from Iman were still preserved and the department hoped to collaborate with the Indonesian government to provide new rhinoceros sperm to infertilise the eggs through the in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) method.

It was reported that State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Christina Liew had said the state government is hoping to expedite the legality process with Indonesia to fertilise Iman's egg with the republic's male rhino and surrogate female rhino.
