Follow-Up: Palm Oil

Possibly preggo Borneo rhino!

See? This is why palm oil isn't so great for the environment.

A very rare Borneo rhino (the article says the Borneo rhino is the rarest of all rhinos, but it also says there are 30 left... there are only 7 Northern white rhinos left) was spotted on remote camera traps in Malaysia. The good news is she may be pregnant. The great news is two calves were spotted earlier.

We've brought animals back from the brink of extinction before, but no matter what we do and how much effort we put into saving a species, it does no good if there's nowhere for them to live... Unfortunately for these rhinos, there's not a whole lot of space for them to begin with.
