Indonesia has more mammals than any other country

Indonesia has more mammals than any other nation in the world, with 515 species. Sadly, it also tops the list for the number of threatened mammals, with nearly a third of its native animals listed as Endangered. This includes the Sumatran tiger (with a wild population of less than 500 animals), the orangutan, Sumatran elephant, as well as the Sumatran rhinoceros. The main threat to Indonesia’s mammals is the destruction of the rainforests, so conservation efforts are trying to prevent mass extinction.
