Original text on this topic:
Since 1931 the rhinoceros is placed on the list of totally protected animals and it cannot be hunted or captured without a special license. Obviously the control on this law is very difficult in the extensive and inaccessible interior forests of Borneo. Export in the usual way of any body parts is no longer possible, thanks to a close supervision by the customs. It is, however, impossible to say to what extent there is illegal export. To safeguard for total extinction, guarded parks are a first way.
