Original text on this topic:
Lam Dong province is about 150 km north-east of Ho Chi Minh City, once Saigon. In March 1991, a survey was made there along the Dong Nai river in the area where the four provinces of Lam Dong, Dong Nai, Song Be and Dac Lac meet. This area of 35,000 ha of lowland forest represents the last stronghold of the Javan rhino in Vietnam and it is estimated that between eight and twelve animals may still survive there.
