Original text on this topic:
Next to the Orang Utan Centre in the Sepilok Forest Reserve is an enclosure for 3 (or 5?) Sumatran rhinos. The attempt made by several countries in the west to breed with animals originating from Indonesia has failed. Therefore one hopes to breed here, and at the time of my visit one female was pregnant. The viewing is limited to 10 people per hour. One is only allowed to see one male, of which all we could see was a part of the skin lying in a wallow.
