Hide and Seek
The current estimate of the remaining world population of this bovine species – the water buffalo/Bubalus arnee – is under 4.000 with less than 2.500 mature specimens. Over the past three generations there has been a population reduction of at least 50 percent. The IUCN reported a decline of 80% in the population of wild water buffaloes in central India between 1960 and 1990.
The wild water buffalo is extinct in Bangladesh, Peninsular Malaysia, and the Sumatran Islands as well as Java and Borneo. It has almost certainly become extinct in Vietnam and Laos.
