Expedition into in Southeast Suriname uncovers 60 new species

Just when you think that we humans have explored and pilfered every square inch of our planet, someone like Trond Larsen goes to South America and reports discovering 60 new species there! His wild stories of adventure and mis-hap in Southeast Suriname lend an air of excitement and danger to his report of the three week trip.

Taken as part of a Rapid Assessment Program (RAP) with Conservation International, the trip was considered a huge success when the boys brought back evidence of all the new species including 11 fishes, six frogs, one snake and many insects.
