46 new types in tropical forests: Suriname team

A voyage to a little South American country has revealed more than 40 species that scientists deem to be new to science. The three-week project was part of preservation International's ongoing Rapid Assessment Program, which has been in progress for more than 20 years.

The team is now working to confirm which of these weird and wonderful creatures are newly discovered species. Fortunately, before the guide had an opportunity to tuck in, the scientists noticed the fish's unique distinctiveness and preserved it as a sample. This could defend native wildlife, ensuring that aboriginal people are able to hunt sustainably, as well as heartening ecotourism
