Very recently a group of researchers in Borneo discovered a previously unknown mammal carnivore in the deep rain forest. This new discovery is just another example of the numerous mysteries that lie in the vast forests of the world. These forests are often threatened by deforestation efforts. As in any economic analysis the costs and benefits of a plan are measured to decide whether or not the plan is a good idea. Land use debates often are hard to decide on due to the lack of actual value to be placed on a forest. This discovery is just one more reason to protect the forests worldwide before the unknown benefits are destroyed in order to profit right now.
