Do you know about the most endangered animal on the planet? It is the Javan(J-aw-ven) Rhinoceros.The Rhino lives around Vietnam but stay tuned into the story to find out more about that later and how it has decreased.

Introduction to Java Rhinos
The most important thing is that there are only 67 left in the entire world. People like to use them just for their horns. They like to kill the rhino, take their horns, and sell them illegally to buyers. They have a tough skin and they have almost a hard skin. The females have no-horn to very short horns. The males are much, much, much bigger than the females. If you have ever seen an armadillo then the rhino looks like it has an armor around its body.
Where do/did they live?
The things that happened to their habitat is that the Vietnam war supposedly reduced their habitat. Now the very few that are left are in conservation in a small peninsula near where they are found. They used to live in multiple places such as Java, which explains how they got their name. Now some people are doing everything they can to keep this species alive. They still need more help. The Javan Rhinoceros lives in only two places in the world and those two places are western Indonesia (in southern Asia) and Eastern Indochina. (Around Vietnam). They live mainly in the (sub)tropical forests.

How can I help?
A way that you can help is by volunteering to pick up trash and you can also help me make smart choices by putting something in the recycling when it can be recycled. I understand that it is hard sometimes like when you are in a public place but if it is small wait til you get home

and put it in the recycling or go to the recycling center near you. You can also help by donating to certain websites like WWF.

Thank you for reading my story and please help to reserve these animals. They need everyone’s help that they can get.
