Original text on this topic:
The last known remaining population of the Western African black rhino Diceros bicomis longipes continues to be the focus of attention with IUCN France, WWF and the AFRSG actively pursuing a solution with the Cameroon government. The specialist group and IUCN France are busy compiling background documentation for a workshop to be held in Cameroon soon after mid-year. The documents summarise the history and population trends of this critically endangered population, and outline a number of potential conservation strategies for consideration. As numbers are deemed to be well below 20, this may well be the last opportunity to save the subspecies from extinction.
