Endangered Rhino returns to Cincinnati Zoo to breed with his sister

Jul 22, 2013

Only two Sumatran rhinos are left on the north American Continent and both are now at the Cincinnati Zoo.  Harapan a six year old male who was born at the Cincinnati Zoo and was most recently at the Los Angeles Zoo has returned to be bred with his sister nine year old Suci. 

In a release the zoo calls this a desperate move to help save the animals.  There are no more than 100 Sumatran rhinos left on the planet.  The wild Sumatran Rhino population has decreased by about 50 percent in the past decade.
