Original text on this topic:
In 1986, an informant from the Dayak Uma tribe in Batu Majang (Long Bagun) clearly identified rhino tracks and droppings in a pass between lime stone rocks on G. Batuajau (E 114.82 N 0.80). A few rhinos may still roam the mountains between Central and East Kalimantan, and between Central and West Kalimantan. This large mountainous area consists mostly of Protection forest, and there fore threats of habitat destruction are neglible.
