The biologist and broadcaster Simon Watts, president of the Society for the Protection of nasty animals, expressed hope that this event will draw attention to such animals. During this campaign, he has worked with comedians who created the "campaign" for every animal of the contestant, and urged supporters to vote for their "favorites." Fish drop eventually collected almost 10 thousand votes. Fish tops the list of "unpleasant" species, which also includes a monkey Nosach, the water of Lake Titicaca frog, popularly known as "water scrotum", as well as pubic vshi.
This event was held to draw attention to the "aesthetic problem" species of animals threatened with extinction. The winner was announced at the British Science Festival in Newcastle. "Our traditional approach to salvation is selfish, - said Simon Watt reporters. - For some reason we protect only those animals which are considered cute. For example, the panda. I have nothing against the pandas, but they have their supporters. And these kinds need help ».
