Indeed great news.
I thought only one animal was known to live there. Does this mean the population is larger than expected? Or is this just a nest with eggs that are not fertilized?
Let's hope for the best!
Maybe time to introduce some more.
Is there still a high poaching risk for this species?

The eggs are not fertilised, that is what Khun Chaiwat's team and WCS are working on.
