This seven-month search, tracking, trapping and rescue effort is a combination of a team of international researchers led by the Indonesian government in cooperation with the Rhino Rescue Project. This specimen was named Pahu, thought to be one of the last 80 Sumatran rhinoceros in the wild, after being rescued was transferred to the Kalimantan sanctuary. Kalimantan Pahu will be accompanied by 9 previously rescued individuals, where they will be carefully maintained and will be researched to maintain the breed.
