On its recent trip to the mountainous rain forests of Nangaritza, Ecuador, scientists from Conservation International’s Rapid Assessment Program (RAP) discovered seven new insects, a new lizard, and four more amphibians. Vice President of CI’s RAP group, Leeanne Alonso, said, “the species that we discovered on this expedition are fascinating and make clear how biologically important this area is – not only because of the wealth of plants and animals that inhabit it but also because of the service that it provides to local people, like clean water and the opportunities for income from ecotourism. It is crucial that it is protected properly.”

Along with the new species the scientists discovered, RAP also found a Nymphagus Chancas, a glass or crystal frog for the first time in Ecuador. The species have been recorded previously in northeastern Peru.

The Nymphagus Chancas is named for its translucent skin, which allows scientists to examine the frog’s internal organs. They are classified by their lack of webbing on their outer fingers, their lack of humeral spines in adult males, and their lobbed livers. Their natural habitats are subtropical or tropical montane rivers and forests.

According to Convservation International, the number of Amphibians is in a serious decline due to the global climate change, infectious diseases, and loss of habitat from deforestation and logging. CI endorses the introduction of amphibian habitats where these specie populations can live without the threat of deforestation. Conservation International also plans to use captive breeding programs to save amphibians from the threat of disease.

On Sunday 5 July Chimpanzees Escape British Zoo in Cheshire - http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/275374

The Chester Zoo in Cheshire, Britain, has been evacuated and closed after the escape of an unidentified number of chimpanzees.
According to the Chester Standard, a spokesperson for the Zoo maintained that none of the chimpanzees have escaped into the public and thus remain on zoo grounds.

Officials closed the zoo as a precaution and are currently trying to recapture the animals.

Workers trying to retain the animals will have a lot of ground to cover. The zoo covers 110 acres.

The BBC reports that the chimpanzees escaped after they "found their way into a nearby keepers' area, where their food is usually prepared."

While chimpanzees and monkey are both primates, they are very different animals. Chimpanzees share some 98% of human genes and are the closest relative to humans in the animal kingdom. They are also regarded as highly intelligent and mobile.
