Just a few photos of Harapan in his new home at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia. He’s happy and healthy and seems to have transitioned well!

A few weeks ago we said farewell to Harapan, the only Sumatran rhino in North America, as he made his journey to Indonesia. Bittersweet, as he was a huge part of a highly successful conservation program here in the US; but inevitable if we are to do the species justice.
His move will both give him a richer life, and with the highest of hopes bring our world another baby Sumatran or two.
Here is the video of his epic journey.
Harapan is the only Sumatran rhino in North America, and one of the few left in the world. Residing at the Cincinnati Zoo he is treated like royalty. He is showered with attention, love and all the ficus branches his heart desires.
One of his enrichment activities is painting. His pieces are sold to raise funds for his fellow rhinos, and their preservation. We’re proud to announce he’s painted a special piece for us at Fight for Rhinos. Don’t miss the chance to bid on this Harapan original on June 1st!
