During the last 20 years, Conservaton International has found more than 1,300 new species. Here are 20 of the most amazing.
Conservation International has been conducting "Rapid Assessment Program" surveys around the world since 1990, and to celebrate the 20th anniversary, the group has put together a "Top 20" list of species found during its RAP expeditions. This is the satanic leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus phantasticus), which was observed during a 1998 survey in the Mantadia-Zahamena corridor of Madagascar. The species was first described in 1888, and it is not rare in primary forests in Madagascar. WWF listed all Uroplatus species on its top-10 "most wanted" species list in 2004 because they were "being captured and sold at alarming rates."
