Forgotten Rhino is the story of Asia's three species of critically endangered rhinoceros.

Forgotten Rhino is the story of Asia's three species of critically endangered rhinoceros — the Javan rhino, the Indian rhino and the Sumatran rhino — and how the people of three developing countries are trying to save them.
