Western Java rain forests

WWF Abstract

These tropical rain forests are notable not only for the animals that still live here, but also for those that have long disappeared. This ecoregion was once home to the Javan tiger, now extinct. Unless this habitat is protected, the same story might someday be told about Javan rhinoceros. This ecoregion harbors one of only two remaining populations of this magnificent mammal.
