A recent video footage released by the Environment and Forestry Ministry of Indonesia showcased a male Javan rhinoceros calf named Luther in Ujung Kulon national park. This calf, believed to be between three to five months old, was observed in the footage captured by one of the 126 camera traps set up in the park to monitor wildlife activity. The mammal, whose gender is still unidentified, was filmed walking alongside its mother within the park, which serves as the sole remaining natural habitat for Javan rhinos.

The sighting of this young Javan rhino calf has been met with enthusiasm by conservationists and officials. Senior environment ministry official Satyawan Pudyatmoko expressed his delight, stating that the footage is positive news and indicates the successful breeding of Javan rhinos, a species that exclusively exists in Ujung Kulon. Despite years of decline in their population numbers, authorities estimate that there are currently around 82 Javan rhinos residing in the 120,000-hectare sanctuary, which is characterized by lush rainforests and freshwater streams. Javan rhinos are identified by their unique appearance, with folds of loose skin resembling protective armor, a feature that sets them apart from other rhinoceros species.

Once abundant across Southeast Asia, Javan rhinos have encountered severe challenges due to extensive poaching and habitat destruction caused by human activities. The vulnerable status of these majestic creatures highlights the crucial need for conservation efforts to protect their remaining population in Ujung Kulon national park and ensure the survival of this endangered species for future generations.
