    The unusual conservation group called The Ugly Animal Preservation Society names a mascot after online voting.

     The unique conservation group, The Ugly Animal Preservation Society, has decided on a mascot—the blobfish.  This non-beauty is a gelatinous blob and was selected via an online video campaign.  The runner’s up in this ugly contest—the proboscis monkey, the Titicaca “scrotum” water frog, and the flightless dung beetle.  Congratulations to all the contestants.  Joking aside, the group says their cause is very real as the fate of less-attractive animals usually goes unnoticed, while the sexier mammals like Panda’s get all the conservation money.
