Scientists are exploring the Indonesian jungle have discovered a collection of claiming a new species, including Pinocchio-nosed frog, the world’s smallest wallaby, and yellow-eyed gecko.
A group of international scientists discover new species in the Foja Mountains in the remote island of Papua in late 2008. They released details, including pictures, on this Monday before the International Day for Biological Diversity on 22 May
Many of the species found during the survey believed were new to science, Conservation International and the National Geographic Society said there were several new mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and dozens of insects.
From this discovery, scientists warn of threats to accelerate the development of extinction of species on the planet that has been warmed and forests as habitats are destroyed because of broken to feed the human population.
“While the animals and plants around the world have started millions of years were swept away in speed, this discovery really stunning in the form of much-needed life as positive news,” said Bruce Beehler, participants of the expedition from Conservation International.
“Places like this are a healthy future for us all and shows that it’s not too late to stop the current species extinction crisis.”
Foja Mountains in Papua province, Indonesia, on the island of New Guinea and covers a large area of tropical forest that has not been damaged and is not affected.
Conservation International said the Frog Pinocchio, his nose looked up when the male is active, but the nose will decrease if the silence.

In other findings that were recorded during the survey, including bats, which feed on nectar rain forest, and small tree rats. Scientists are becoming increasingly concerned about the level of the missing species on the planet and show great benefits from forests, river systems, wetlands and oceans to human life and economy.
Latest reports show that governments around the world failed to meet the targets achieved in the year 2002 to reduce the rate of biodiversity loss by 2010, which was declared by the United Nations as International Year of Biodiversity.
Negotiators from around the world will meet in Japan in October to discuss new targets to stem the loss of biodiversity during the next 40 years.
