Variety Friday- In The News
Fridays will be left open for whatever cool science stuff I can find out there. Today's topic is "In the News." Take a look at this article from Yahoo! http://buzz.yahoo.com/buzzlog/92687. This article talks about some never before seen (and endangered) creatures. The point of the article is to bring about awareness of endangered species and conservation. To learn more, check out Conservation International (http://www.conservation.org/FMG/Articles/Pages/in_ecuador_science_for_conservation.aspx).
As for this little guy pictured, he is known as the "glass frog." His skin is translucent, so all the organs are visible. He lives in Ecuador near mountains and rivers. His home is threatened, but groups like Conservation International are helping to save this fun little frog.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! See what cool science you can find in your own backyard.
