A rare Sumatran rhino was born at Indonesia's Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary on June 23. The birth is the first since 2001, when the newborn's father, Andalas, was born at the Cincinnati Zoo. This latest addition to the Sumatran rhino family is the culmination of multiple zoological entities working together, says Dr. Terri Roth, Director of the Cincinnati Zoo's Lindner Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife:
"When we celebrated the monumental birth of Andalas at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2001, we never imagined he would play such a pivotal role in the survival of his species. This international collaboration is conservation work at its finest."
