Harrisson, T., 1965. A future for Borneo's wildlife?. Oryx 8 (2): 99-104

Location: Asia - South East Asia - Borneo
Subject: Distribution - Records
Species: Sumatran Rhino

Original text on this topic:
Worst of all is D. sumatrensis, for which Borneo was long regarded as a reservoir area. I have been at much pains to seek every level of native and official information from all corners of the island since 1961. My estimate for May 1965 is as follows:
Kalimantan 10 (?5) all in the north centre
Sabah 11-13 all but one on the north-east
Sarawak, Brunei in Rejang basin
There has been only one recent report of two animals within contact range, and none of babies or young since 1957.
