Hagfish Day is observed annually on the third Wednesday in October.
Hagfish are considered to be the ugliest of species. The idea behind this National Day is to encourage everyone to look beyond the exterior of the Hagfish and appreciate how highly evolved they are.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Use #HagfishDay to post on social media.And, if you have images of some you have caught, why not show them to the world?
WhaleTimes founded Hagfish Day in 2009 to ‘beauty of ugly’ and raise awareness of the importance of all animals – not just the pretty ones.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
