Mark - Thanks for posting that - I hadn't heard about it otherwise. Another example of how difficult it is to prove a negative and that "absence of evidence" isn't necessarily evidence of absence.

"This is a huge find for our team. We have spent nearly three years and thousands of man-hours looking for the northern Mexican gartersnake,"
That's some serious focus!

If a species is declared extinct, then found again, was it legally extinct? Is legally extinct even a thing?

On a side note, how many bonus points should finding extinct species be for chapter vs chapter contests?
