A conservation programme for some of the world's most bizarre and unusual creatures has been launched by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).


Is it manufactured? :lol:

By the way nice way to protect rared species... :wink:

As opposed to the nice and cuddly looking one for which it is easy to raise funding, it is much harder to find support for those species. Hence the interest of such initiative.

That just leaves all the "plain" and "boring" endangered species to be taken care of. For example, the Southern Idaho Groundsquirrel... or a species of nearly microscopic freshwater snails found only in springs along a particular portion of the Snake River.
Not many people care about these species. In fact, they tend to just make people mad because they can't develop areas where these endangered species live, so there's more antipathy than benevolence.
