Frogs thought to be extinct rediscovered
"Their rediscovery shows that there is hope to find healthy populations and protect them,"
- Paul Salaman of the American Bird Conservancy
El Dorado, Colombia - Two rare species of tropical frogs that were thought to have gone extinct have been rediscovered in a remote forest region of South America that was destined to be developed for holiday homes.
Scientists said that it is the first time in 14 years that anyone has seen the two critically endangered animals and their sightings give hope to other species of amphibians that are feared to have succumbed to a global fungal infection.
