This video is called Rare Javan Rhinos Filmed.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
In Indonesia, scientists have found traces of four young Javanese rhinoceroses.
According to the WWF, all four of them were born recently; this means an unprecedented ‘baby boom’ for this threatened species.
Of the five rhino species still alive in the wild, the Javanese rhino is the rarest.
In Indonesia, at most 56 are stil alive, and in Vietnam eight.
The animals are rarely seen as they live deep in the jungle.
WWF researchers saw footprints of three little rhinos and came eye to eye with the fourth one.
WWF calls the discovery a sign of hope for the species.
