In 2014-2015 381 scientists have discovered new species of plants and animals in the Amazon jungle. It is reported by the world wildlife Fund (WWF).

In two years, the researchers found 216 species of plants, 93 species of fish, 32 species of amphibians, 19 species of reptiles and 18 mammal species.

The scientists noted that during this period revealed an average of one every 1.9 days, which is the highest indicator.

Ricardo Mello, program coordinator of WWF-Brazil, considers that these data should force the government to think about the irreversible consequences that would result from large-scale projects such as construction of roads or hydroelectric plants.
