Imagine All They Would "Discover" If They Were Looking

These critters are a marvel.
Discovery in the Foja Mountains
A biological expedition to a remote New Guinea rain forest explores a world of bizarre and beautiful creatures, among them a spike-nosed tree frog and a tiny inchworm moth as fantastic as any computer-generated sci-fi monster.

The most marvelous thing is that they were found when
"one hops into their mountain camp and volunteers to be discovered."

The wonder of such magnificent finds was not enough to quell the worries that we are all doomed.

"While animals and plants are being wiped out across the globe at a pace never seen in millions of years, the discovery of these absolutely incredible forms of life is much needed positive news," Bruce Beehler, a senior research scientist at CI and participant on the expedition, said in a statement.

"Places like these represent a healthy future for all of us and show that it is not too late to stop the current species extinction crisis," he said.
