SOS Rhino : In the News : Articles : Tsunami Statement
 
The staff of SOS Rhino are very saddened by the devastating effect the tsunami had on those living in and visiting areas of South-East Asia. The loss of human life and entire coastal towns and villages is tragic. Sabah, its people, wildlife areas, and wildlife were not affected as Sabah is situated in northern Borneo. SOS Rhino's staff, base camps, partners and colleagues are safe.

It is unfortunate that parts of the northwest side of Peninsula Malaysia were affected. Hundreds of people were killed and injured in this tragedy. The Malaysian Government had responded immediately by monitoring and evacuating any potential risk areas such as coastal villages and residents in Penang, Langkawi, and Kedah.

As of this date, we have no formal reports on assessment of damage to any wildlife areas in Malaysia or Indonesia, where Sumtran rhinos are likely to be found.

SOS Rhino will continue to monitor the situation in South-East Asia and post any updates.
