Wanderer, writer, traveler, runner, yoga enthusiast, beginner photographer, animal and nature lover, tennis, basketball and football fan, sweet tooth and forever kid at heart. I'm crazy in love with TV shows and movies of all genres. I seriously doubt this is important, but I think that I'm freaking in love with Paul Wesley's character in Vampire Diaries: Stefan and with Rafa Nadal who I've been a fan of since 2003. I like all sorts of music: dance, pop, hiphop, r&b, blues, jazz, alternative, country but I know I'd always be a rocker chick at heart. I sing like Macy Gray and dance like there's no tomorrow. I am and forever will be in awe of the great and hidden wonders of life.
On 25 October 2011, WWF and the International Rhino Foundation confirmed that the Javan rhinoceros in Vietnam is extinct.
The species was initially believed to be extinct in Vietnam until 1988, when a very small population was found still clinging to existance in Cat Tien National Park. Efforts were made to save this population but poor protection of its habitat ultimately led to its demise. The last Javan rhino in Vietnam was shot and killed in April 2010 and its horn removed.
It is WWF’s highest priority to save the remaining Javan rhinos in Indonesia and the other species in Vietnam – such as the tiger, Asian elephant and endemic species like the saola – that are all at risk of extinction unless law enforcement and protected area management significantly improves.
