“Dozens of new species have been discovered in the Kaieteur National Park(KNP) and the Upper Potaro area in Guyana. Some of the new discoveries are believed not to be found in any other part of the world and were among the most significant finding of a recent report released by World Wildlife Fund Guianas and Global Wildlife Conservation. This is the second report in a series that highlights Guyana’s incredibly rich biodiversity and represents the most recent broad-based floral and faunal assessment in this unique region. The verdant forests, rivers, streams and even tiny rock seepages within the Kaieteur Plateau teem with life as researchers have documented.”
