The Endangered Species Foundation (ESF) talks saving New Zealand’s ten most endangered creatures

The Endangered Species Foundation (ESF) started in March 2013 and set out to sustainably fund conservation action to prevent the extinction of any New Zealand native species. Since then, it has been actively working to raise public awareness of New Zealand’s most endangered species and develop innovative new ways of keeping animals alive – like 3D printing eggs, and having them painted by Weta Digital. Founder Dr Mike Thorsen talks about its efforts to keep New Zealand’s most endangered species alive.
