Papua New Guinea is a cornucopia of ecology. It ranks within the top five most diverse countries in the world with an estimated 21,000 types of higher plants, 242 species of mammals, and 762 species of birds. It also has one of the highest endemic rates of wildlife anywhere in the world due to the isolation of island from the rest of the Asian and Australian continents (Source: Embassy of PNG to the Americas (www.pngembassy.org/environment)).
