KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has started a conservation discussion with Indonesia in a bid to save and mate their last surviving but ailing female Sumatran rhino. Liew, who is also Deputy Chief Minister, will also visit Indonesia next month to pursue the details to find ways to breed their last rhino. Apart from Krishna, the others at the meeting included officials from Borneo Rhino Alliance (BORA) and WWF Malaysia. “I am pleased to note Malaysia and Indonesia are equally committed to wildlife conservation efforts towards preventing extinction of the Sumatran rhinoceros, which is one of the world’s most endangered species,” Liew added. Liew also welcomed WWF Malaysia’s desire to financially support the rhino breeding programme within the framework of the MoU.
