Deers living quietly on a small island
The Bawean Deer live only on the Indonesian island of Bawean. Bawean is a very small island that would take about three laps around the coastline to qualify as a full marathon. Originally, the island was rich in natural resources covered by a thick forest that made the perfect home for the watchful Bawean Deer. They are believed to have lived in various parts of the island until the 19th century.

Now, due to deforestation, they are down to several hundreds ...
However, the number of Bawean Deer dropped sharply from the 1950s due to deforestation of the virgin forests. Their number has stabilized now that there are sanctuaries, but even still there are only several hundreds left. Animals with limited habitats find it difficult to cope with environmental changes. For a small population of Bawean Deer living on a small island, a single disease or disaster could wipe out the entire population in the wink of an eye.
