    Paradise found in New Guinea jungle

    There is a report in the Globe and Mail that scientists say they have found a "lost world" in an Indonesian mountain jungle that is home to dozens of exotic new species of birds, butterflies, frogs and plants.

    "It's as close to the Garden of Eden as you're going to find on Earth," said Bruce Beehler, co-leader of the U.S., Indonesian and Australian expedition to part of the cloud-shrouded Foja mountains in the west of New Guinea.

    Indigenous peoples living near the Foja range, which rises to 2,200 metres, said they do not venture into the trackless area of 3,000 square kilometres -- roughly the size of Luxembourg or a little over half the size of Prince Edward Island."

    Sorry to spoil the party and correct the globe :

    I was a professional diver and spend a lot of time around the (malaria prowned) waters of New Guinea. Very beautiful, WWII sunken ships, untouched habitats.

    The project talked about Indonesia. Different world of Islands. Roughly between Australia and India: My brother in law lived there together with the last generation of manhunters.
    They build the very last gas processing refinery of Indonesia. But there are still a lot of islands undiscovered. But this is a world apart of New gunieas
