The historical range of the Javan Rhino is uncertain, but it did extend well beyond the island after which it is named. In the far north, its occurrence would have overlapped with the Indian Rhino, and in the south with the Sumatran Rhino.
The Javan Rhino has been devastated by poaching and land-use pressure. It has been reduced to one tiny population of no more than 75 on the western tip of Java.

The historical distribution for the Javan Rhino is derived from the Status Survey & Conservation Action Plan (New Edition) Asian Rhinos edited by Thomas J Foose and Nico van Strien, published by the IUCN/SSC Asian Rhino Specialist Group (AsRSG).
