How cool is this?

I know I am a geek, but I find this so cool. They have discovered a population of frogs not seen since 1980 and thought to be extinct!

From the AP (photo credit to):
"Fisheries conservation officer Luke Pearce was surveying for endangered fish in a stream when he noticed the distinctly marked frog, recognized by its green, warty back and large golden spots.

After returning last month with an amphibian expert, the pair discovered a large population living in the area.

The location of the frog colony will remain a secret in order to give the species, which is also known as the Yellow-spotted Tree Frog and as the Tablelands Bell Frog, the best chance of survival, Sartor told the Australian Associated Press. "

Here is the article.

Biodiversity is the greatest gift we can give future generations! Whether in open pollinated veggies, heritage livestock, or in nature - it is our greatest blessing and one of our biggest challenges.
