Javan rhinos face extreme threat of extinction


Today’s Video of the Day comes from a new study from Colorado State University and features a look at the only remaining population of Javan rhinos, who face an extreme threat of extinction.

In addition to being a prime target for poaching, Javan rhinos could also be wiped out by natural disasters such as tsunamis and volcanic eruptions, the study said. The last population live in Ujung Kulon National park, which is located dangerously close to Mount Krakatoa and the Indonesian Sunda Arc.
