AbstractIn the second half of the 19th century, the rhinoceros occurred throughout Borneo except southern Sarawak, northwestern Kalimantan and some parts of southern Kalimantan. The animal was extinct in the coastal and other populated areas in about 1930, especially in the southern part of Kalimantan. Presently some small populations remain, scattered over the Sarawak interior (if the rhinoceros survives at all there), northeastern Sabah, possibly also southern Sabah and around Mt. Kinabalu, and the interior of Central and East Kalimantan. It is estimated that some 15 to 25 rhinos are still alive in Borneo.
