Lost World Found

Scientists find 'Lost World' in Indonesia

JAKARTA, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A "lost world" shrouded in mist and never seen by humans has been discovered in an isolated Indonesian jungle, hiding thousands of undiscovered species.
The discovery was reported by an international team of scientists, one of whom told reporters, "It's as close to the Garden of Eden as you're going to find on Earth," The Independent reported.
The previously unknown species include large mammals, birds, plants, butterflies and giant flowers. The research team was amazed to find the animals, having never seen humans, were unafraid of the scientists, Sky News said.
Bruce Beehler of the U.S. organization Conservation International and Indonesian Institute of Sciences led the monthlong expedition last November and December. He said the hitherto undiscovered 2 million acres of unspoiled jungle was found in the Foja Mountains in New Guinea and is so isolated, the scientists had to be dropped into the jungle by helicopter.
Beehler told the BBC: "It's a beautiful, untouched, unpopulated forest. We found dozens, if not hundreds, of new species ... There were so many new things it was almost overwhelming. And we have only scratched the surface of what is there."

Just how incredible is that, that in this day and age we still haven't found everything this planet has to offer.

Read that on the bbc news site earlier today, the number of new or almost extinct species they have found is amazing.

Apparently the mountans where it's located are so inaccessible it's a helicopter job to get there. I suppose that means it's about 3 months before they start offering photographic trips, and 12 months before there's a MacDonalds there.

whoah, i used to live near there! in the very north west of PNG.

amazing to think that this can still happen, what an incredible feeling it must have been to discover a place that no-one knew about in this day.
