Reappearance Of The 'Extinct' Frog

Professor Carlos Rocha and a team of researchers from the Pedagogical and Technological University of Colombia (UPTC) in Boyac, have sighted a spectacular South American frog Atelopus ebenoides marinkellei which had been feared extinct for a decade. Conservation International supported the expedition. The discovery was made in a small remote region of Colombia. Red List of Threatened Species says of the painted frog that it "...has not been recorded since 1995, despite attempts to locate it. Fabio Arjona, executive director of Conservation International in Colombia says urgent measures are needed both in the wild and through captive breeding programmes.

I'm a colombian and also Reiki level II. Happy coincidence to have found your blog. Would you post something related to your personal experiences with Reiki? I abandonned it, I don't know how to use it. I thought you could give me some help over the internet.
