These Strange Animals Were Voted The World’s Ugliest
…for a good reason. The Ugly Animal Preservation Society (UAPS) draws attention to the need to conserve animals in all shapes and sizes. It is quite obvious why cute little pandas and majestic elephants might garner more attention than say a blobfish. Simon Watt, biologist and President for Life of the England-based society organised the contest in which the fish was voted the ugliest animal of all by the public, and for that exact reason UAPS have chosen it as their mascot.
Talking to National Geographic Watt said, “We’ve needed an ugly face for endangered animals for a long time, and I’ve been amazed by the public’s reaction. For too long the cute and fluffy animals have taken the limelight, but now the blobfish will be a voice for the mingers who always get forgotten.”
