Recently some scientists have discovered”
paradise lost”. It is in New Guinea. There are
birds, butterflies , frogs, insects, plants and
flowers all belonging to speciespreviously
unknown to man. Many of these species have
never been studied before.

The Garden of Eden
This breathtakingly beautiful forest is uncontaminated and
uninhabited by humans. It is in the FojaMountains , one of
the most isolated parts of Indonesia and of the world . It is
completely separate from the rest of the world and cannot
be reached on foot. After years of asking the indigenouspeople about its existences, scientist from Conservation
International and the Indonesian Institute of Science finally
managed to arrive by air. “ It’s like the Garden of Eden!”
rejoiced one of theresearchers on first seeing it.

A Virgin Forest
The two closest tribes to the Foja mountains are the
Kwerba and the Papasena. Neither of them had ever
been in the forest. Thus, even the Kwerbaand the
Papasena, who helped the scientists explore the forest,
were surprised by its complete isolation. It really is a
“lost World!”.

The Animals
For the first time scientists saw numerousundiscovered
animal and plant species. In this forest there are at least
500 types of plants, including 5 species of palm trees , 20
species of frogs, 4 butterflies families, 40 species of
mammalsand numerous birds such as the Orangeheaded Honey Eater. The scientists excitement exploded
when they saw, the fabulous bird o paradise. This bird was
described for the first time in the late 19thcentury. They
also discovered the Queen Alexandra butterfly, the
biggest butterfly in the world
