Here's an interesting page where you can see photos of some of the world's most endangered species.
Several new species (24!) were discovered in Suriname in a study sponsored by a mining company which wanted to mine the area. Whether the mining plans went forward or not isn't reported. You can see photos of several of the "new" animals here.
This page has a slide show (on the right) of animal photos which are very interesting, and great examples of animal photography as well.
There's just always something new and interesting in the world of wildlife.
