The World’s Most Endangered Species;

(In no particular order).

The Javan Rhinoceros.

The Javan Rhinoceros is the most endangered of the world’s five Rhinoceros species, with an estimated 40-60 animals remaining on the western tip of the Island of Java (Indonesia) in Ujung Kulon National Park. Another tiny population—containing as few as six animals—lives in and around Cat Tien National Park in of Vietnam. The water- and swamp-loving Javan Rhinoceros formerly ranged throughout Southeast Asia and Indonesia, but has been hunted to near-extinction for its horn, which is used to make Asian folk medicines. Although it is now protected, it may not have a large-enough breeding population to prevent the species from going extinct.
