Today I read an article that three frogs threatened with extinction have been found recently. This kind of frog was abundant before, but the number of the species have declined rapidly due to environmental changes, and the race has been in danger of extinction. To avoid extinction, researchers have searched for a mate for the individual preserved at a museum for a decade, but they have not been able to find any wild individual so far. So, the individual at the museum has been considered as the last one on the planet. Only recently, researchers finally found three other frogs in wild. The researchers who discovered them must have been elated. Even I felt their excitement reading the article.

The newly discovered and preserved frogs are now four. I hope they will produce offspring and the race will avoid extinction.
