The Wildlife Health Cornell Team hopes your 2019 has started off well. We're excited to share our first newsletter of the new year, with updates on some of our conservation efforts over the past several months.
Wildlife Health Cornell
works on some of the most endangered species in the world, including the Javan rhino. There are only an estimated 68 Javan rhinos left on the planet, and we are working with Indonesian partners to investigate
and translocation techniques to help secure a future for this critically endangered natural treasure.
Through a grant from the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future and in partnership with Cornell's Lab of Ornithology, a Cornell student is now documenting the
of these rhinos for the first time. The recordings will allow scientists to better monitor the Javan rhino population, gain insights into group dynamics and structure, and potentially help to identify ideal candidates for eventual translocation to establish a second population.

As in the past, we hope you find this e-newsletter useful and thought-provoking. Please let us know!
