Sabah rhinoceroses are not only the smallest rhinos in the world, they are also among the rarest. The project was launched to rescue the last Sabah rhinoceroses in Borneo and works in the sense of a holistic approach to protect the remaining lowland rain forest – the habitat of the Sabah rhinoceros.
