They did a great job , hope that they will continue exploring different places here in the Philippines for us to know the unknown species of our mother land :)
At the Field Museum in Chicago, there's this exhibit explaining that fact that we're in a mass-extinction right now. Due to human activity (urbanization, construction, logging, etc), tens of thousands of species go extinct every year. There was even this digital display that showed the number of species that had gone extinct since 8 am that morning — approximately four species went extinct every hour. It was really depressing to see, especially when you watched that "extinct species" count go up every so often.
Having said that, I'm glad to hear that new species have been discovered! Hopefully this news will help to educate others about the world we live in, and the importance of respecting the livelihoods of our fellow species.
