The Sumatran population is close to extinction, with no more than 50 animals left in the wild. The largest mainland population is in Malaysia (approximately 1,500-2,000 individuals). In Thailand subpopulations are unlikely to reach more than 50-100 individuals at the most. There are small, isolated populations in other areas, comprising 10-15 individuals. Unless these populations can be linked, which is unlikely in most places, they are almost certainly too small to be viable in the long-term.
