New Species Discovered in Borneo

What better news could we receive for Earth Day than the discovery of a new species? How about the discovery of a whopping 123 new species! Now that is some seriously good news, isn't it?

The species live in the remote forests of Borneo and include such interesting finds as a frog that can glide through the air, numerous orchids, a gorgeous snake called the Kopstein's Bronzeback and a greenish-yellow slug that shoots "love darts" at would-be mates.

For more information and to download the report of these amazing finds visit the website WWF.

You can view a photo slide show of some of the new species here and read an e-mail exchange between and Christoper Greenwood, WWF Initiative's international communications manager here.
