A new "Eden"

Fun and interesting news!

A new "Eden" has been found in the Indonesian jungle! Read the BBC article here! It's amazing! A newly discovered, untouched-by-humanity self-contained ecosystem that's almost impossible to get to (thank goodness, hopefully we won't screw this one up!). LOTS of new plant and animal species that we can study and learn from - they even found a bird that had been first described over 100 years ago, but no one had ever found where it originated from!

Be sure to look at the pictures, found a little ways down in the article, in the box titled: "FOJA MOUNTAINS SURVEY", click on the link "In pictures".
