Poachers and lack of territory have killed off these amazing rhinos in Vietnam. Can we save the 35 left in Indonesia?

Horrible and extremely sad news! All this death for the horns to send to China. Of course we can't save the last remaining 35 in Indonesia, just look what's happening to the orangutans. As long as the corruption mandates in these countries and China does nothing to stop the illegal trade, we'll be saying good bye to all these magnificent animals. I guess blocking Google and Facebook in China is more important than to stop the trade of wildlife

agre with Kye. When those people understand we need to protect nature and animals, it will be too late. There'll be nothing left.

It's too sad that no one loved the species enough to save it. If there are only 35 left it's probably too late. This is an example where good zoos, good sanctuaries, and safe habitats would have saved precious, innocent animals. As long as there are poachers we need these institutions to save species.

When is the rest of the world going to get angry enough at the f**king southeast asians and try to end the slaughter. This is only the beginning. They won't stop until there are no more animals left. I hope who ever killed the last javan rhino ends up in some fire pit for eternity.

I don't know, but Australia is excellent at extinctions; feral cats etc. are doing great damage to our small marsupials.

all poachers and buyers of animals poached and sellers should get the death penalty just as those poor defenseless animals were given the death penalty with no mercy by the poachers!

With the rate of killings I'm surprise that any Rhinos are alive. Very extreme penalties should exist for pouching!!!

This is so heartbreaking,and for what? So some pathetic maggot can have a trophy placed on some bloody wall...or perhaps the world's greatest animal offenders,China will be popping back ground up horn as we do with Vitamin C???So many callous and ignorant people in this world...sad to say,but i honestly beleive 70% of all our large animals will be extinct in the next 15-20 years.

Sad :( Thats why we have to remember by signeing the petitions on this site-we can make a difference for other species-they are the innocents-we need to be their voice!

There is no excuse for any animal to go extinct. If countries can't protect the animals, they need to give them to a country that will protect them. They need to poach the poachers. The poachers are stealing from the world and don't deserve to live.

With the loss of each species, human perception narrows. It wouldn't narrow if we lost poachers though. Time to think about what is more crucial to the planet and Poach the poachers.

God help us. Why are these criminals allowed to do this and why are we call standing looking the other way? Until we support governments with shoot to kill poachers then this will never stop and we should be exercising our votes to stop of governments from cozying up to the governments like China to allow their country to be behind this disgusting practice. It will be orangutans and tigers next and wolves in North America we are all to blame....
