"We love you, even if you're ugly". That's the message from the Endangered Species Foundation as it tries to encourage New Zealanders to sponsors some of Aoetearoa's rare but less cute creatures.

It's nominated six weird and wonderful species that people are able to virtually adopt themselves or as a Christmas gift even, by donating toward their survival.

General Manager of The Endangered Species Foundation Natalie Jessup talks to Lisa Owen.
