Adopt today
We love you especially if you’re ugly!

If you're into celebrating the weird and wonderful,
haere mai, welcome, you've met your tribe.


Here at the Endangered Species Foundation we are into saving the rarest of the rare. From weta fungus to the little-known Foveaux looper moth (AKA Asaphodes frivola) we celebrate the uniqueness of our most vulnerable species.


By adopting a little known, endangered creature your donation will go towards protecting ecosystems in Aotearoa and helping all our most endangered taonga survive and thrive.
