Malaysia's last known Sumatran rhino dies

This Rhino was 25 years old and had cancer, she was the last female, while the last male had died months earlier in May. This is very sad but not surprising to think about. As humans continue to populate, more and more animals will continue to be extinct. We have no idea the effect we have had to cause the extinction of this rhino. As there are no more of those rhinos this could have effect on many other animals and plants in the environment. As the extinction of one animal could cause the extinction of another. Regarding the balances of an ecosystem. Today only five species of rhino can be found. Rhinos could be as low as about 30 scattered across the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, displaying how critically endangered they are. People have tried and attempted to breed rhinos and species but have unfortunately failed. Reasons that the rhinos are endangered is mostly because of us humans. As the article states, that rhinos have been hit hard by poaching. Although this is not the only reason, it takes a big effect on the population of the rhinos. Other factors involve, habitat loss and a breakage in their population and nature of their structure. Does anyone else have any ideas on why these rhinos are endangered and going extinct and how to stop from a loss of rhino species?
