Tsunami could wipe out the last Javan rhinos

  • Entire species of the critically endangered Javan rhino could be wiped off by the tsunami that occurred due to volcanic eruption of Anak Krakatau, in Indonesia. Only 67 rhinos exist, and that too in the Ujung Kulon National Park, which has been hit by the tsunami. The volcano continues to erupt and officials have decided to move the rhinos from the location. Javan Rhinos are listed in the Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. They are the most threatened species out of five rhino species that exist.
