Way Kambas, Sumatra. Andalas successfully mated with Ratu at 3:20 AM on December 5th 2009. A drop of semen was collected and the staff confirmed lots of motile sperm were present.

A great achievement.

Absolutely brilliant news!

Hope it goes well.
Keen to know if they are going to use progesteron?

Now they can focus on the other females.

Very Best wishes

Unfortunately I just received a message that Ratu has lost her pregnancy. The IRF states the following:

QUOTE
While we are saddened by this loss, the fact that we achieved a pregnancy after only the third mating is still a victory.† Once Ratu is ready, the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary staff will resume efforts to achieve another pregnancy.† Emi lost a number of pregnancies early in gestation before successfully carrying a pregnancy to term, and we will draw on Cincinnatiís experience to help Ratu sustain her next pregnancy.


An official press release has been posted on a local news site in Cincinnati; I'm sure more releases will pop up shortly.

Ratu news

I'm very saddened by the news as I personally feel a connection with what happens in the SRS. I hope the team there will continue their efforts (which I'm sure they'll do) and that a new pregnancy is around the corner.
