There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Another insight as to why they maintain high genetic diversity despite genetic bottleneck is due to the presence of javan and sumatran rhinos in their historical habitat although mostly in the northeast. They must have mated with these rhino subspecies and must have developed high genetic diversity IMO,

https://rhinos.org/species/sumatran-rhino/   
 
Fewer than 100 Sumatran rhinos survive in very small and highly fragmented populations.

The Sumatran rhino is the most endangered of all rhinoceros species due to its rapid rate of decline. Because of poaching, numbers have decreased more than 70% over the last 20 years, with the only viable population now in Indonesia. The species was declared extinct in the wild in Malaysia in 2015. Sumatran rhinos exist only in protected areas where they are physically guarded by Rhino Protection Units. Continued protection, combined with consolidating small, fragmented populations into larger ones, and intensifying captive breeding efforts, are the best hope for the species’ survival
