According to a report compiled by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF),the new species discovered include 30 unique fish species, two tree frog species, 16 ginger species, three tree species and one large-leafed plan species.
Stuart Chapman, WWF International Coordinator of the Heart of Borneo Program, said that the â€œmore we look the more we findâ€ on Borneo. â€œThese discoveries reaffirm Borneoâ€™s position as one of the most important centers of biodiversity in the worldâ€.
