It’s sad, but nowadays even wildlife requires an advertising campaign…
Daily Pictures, WWF
WWF? as in World Wrestling Federation. They have gone in a different directing then when i remember them.
This is so sad what we are doing to our planet. Most people, like my myself, want to do something
but have given up. Our leaders are useless in battling the oil companies. It boils down to one thing. Do you want to give up your soul for money and power?
It’s horrible that people don’t care about thier own world , it makes me wonder why god put humans in charge…I say it’s time for him to see what everyone’s doing to his world.
It makes me wonder why humans put God in charge.
What an amazing collection of images. They’re really thought provoking and I’ll be sharing this page with friends. The images are cleverly thought out with such a genuine hint of sadness for the destruction we wreak on our only planet.
I can’t believe someone thought this had something to do with wrestling!!!
It proves that humans as a whole have strayed a long way from what we should be.
The images really make you think, they make me very sad. But the truth is if we don’t do something to stop those things from happening, they will sooner or later.
Do your part to make things better, don’t just rely on the next person to make it happen because they may be doing the same thing-expecting someone else to do it. No one person can save the planet on their own, we all need to do our part or else we and our future generations will suffer the consequences.
WWF Actually stands for ‘World Wildlife Fund’, Conor! Very cute!!!
Makes ME wonder, why GOD left HUMANS in charge!!! Look at the pics again, the animals aren’t destroying the planet, “Mankind, the ones with a higher intelligence, are destroying it! I guess those who blame God for everything are the ones who can’t handle a ‘free will’. If all you can do is pass blame, do the rest of us a favor and sit down before you hurt yourself.
I’m so glad we could put our religious differences aside for a better cause.
Who cares about the involvement of religious beliefs. If yo believe in anything other than destroying this planets ability to sustain life than act as an example. don’t buy useless consumer crap. don’t just throw everything away. convert your car into something else or stop using one. set an example. I think that it is just crap that humans are looked at the superior race and we can’t even come together and try to reverse the damage that we have done to our world. instead we are at war and it is all about differences, money, and convenience. Realize that we all came from our mothers and that we are all humans on this planet together. help each other. you could even take photographs as an example. WE ALL ARE HERE AND MUST COME TOGETHER.
if you are interested in talking about coming together and making a stand. email me
Knight Rider, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless in a world of criminals who operate above the law.
I think the comment about humans putting god in charge is supposed to mean that most religous nuts don’t care about the environment because they believe that getting to heaven is more important or that armageddon is approaching soon. Either way, they’re nuts and they’re backwards views are hurting humanity in many ways.
You know Mike, it’s sad and upsetting to me that Christians or others of faith don’t put an importance on the wellness of this earth. I am a christian and I want to see the earth through. Not just for the preservation of God’s amazing creativity, but because this earth is simply breathtaking, it’s therapeutic and exciting and we can learn so much from it. I’m sorry you have gotten a horrible impression of these religious nuts, and you know, most of them probably are nuts! LoL I just want you to know that I share your concern, and not all of us religious people have it backwards ;o)
Mike and others, thought you might find this interesting!
It’s an article about the importance of nature in children’s lives including how it effects them emotionally and in their education.
How long will the land lie parched and the grass in every field be withered? Because those who live in it don’t care, the animals and birds have perished.” (Jeremiah 12:4)
“It will be made a wasteland, parched and desolate before me; the whole land will be laid waste because there is no one who cares.” (Jeremiah 12:11)
Our Standards have been shaken,
Our goals are empty goals.
Our man made world devours us,
We are lost in our new roles.
The animals still have got it,
They settle in the sun.
Its us humans who have lost it,
Oh Man what have you done to life’s enchantment?????
If you REALLY wanted to help out the planet, you’d kill yourself.
I agree with you Henry! I’m sick and tired of hearing about Global Warming (doesn’t exist), save the environment, save the whales, save the whatever’s-trendy-at-the-moment. Sick and tired of all of it!
Poor FireAngel. Those who say that glocbal warming doesn’t exist are the Flat-Earthers of the new millenium. YOu just want it not to exist so you don’t have to worry about it. As for saving the environment, you live in it. If you don’t want to keep it in good condition that’s your own form of suicide.
OK, so “global warming” exists. Big f’n deal. I hate to tell you this, because
you should have learned this in science class; but the world is ALWAYS either
warming or cooling. Its temperature is NEVER CONSTANT AND NEVER HAS
BEEN! Our mountains have been sea beds and our sea beds, mountains. Ice
has covered the majority of the Northern hemisphere and may well retreat until
it’s almost all gone, then it will begin its exorable migration southward again.
I just love how people panic over nothing. Nature is greater than man; indeed,
nature operates in total obliviousness of his presence. The earth will warm, it
will cool, it will flood, burn, wind whip, dry out, rehydrate, erode, build back up,
etc, etc, etc. It has done so for millions of years before mankind, and will continue
to do so for millions of years after man finds a way to eradicate himself as a

very disturbing . makes the guilt start up again
I’d like to know a little more about the pens.
Ummm… yeah Conor, WWF is World Wildlife Fund. The WWF you are talking about is now WWE.
Anyway, yes, the whole situation is sad and the fact wildlife actually needs advertising makes you even more sick.
i just want to know where i can get that pen??? any one know
I would like to know where to get that pen as well.
” Free Thought
It makes me wonder why humans put God in charge.”
Ya he seems to be doing a really horrible job is he really exists. I mean come on, the world has gone to hell and they only thing he does is send crazy fanatics to the world to tell people they’re going to hell.
Not real impressed with his “omnipotence” I must say.
a sayin comes in handy here….
” if everyone cleaned the rubbish outside their door the whole street would be clean”
But who is?
Ok, so maybe its true the earth is cooling down and warming up all the time, but the sad fact is we are destroying the rainforest, animals such as tigers and apes are disapearing and the earth is being damaged by US.
We can blaim the oil companys and the goverment but when we pay to power our computers and drive our cars what else can we expect.
As resgards to the relgion stuff, I think as they have such a big audiance if they do love god who created this planet shoudnt preach more to look after the earth, but as I dont go to church I would know if they did.
Prehaps if we all did something to benfite the earth and not our conseience it might just make a littel diffreance, if not for us than prehaps for my 3 month old daughter.
A wildlfie photogrpher.
It’s because no one has any backbone that this is happening. If the government won’t do anything, it’s up to the people to do something. Personally, I don’t drive a car, I use solar power and salvaged rechargeable batteries and recycled cell phone chargers to power most of my equipment [not all cause I haven't found everything I need to build bigger natural generators] I ride a bike, I walk and run, and if I have to go a long distance I use public transportation or carpool. Sure my life is a bit more challenging as far as lacking world-killing conveniences goes, but I also don’t pay for a gym membership because I get enough excersize as it is. If everyone had the balls to give up their dunkin donuts coffee mornings in their oil and gas guzzling SUV’s we’d be in alot better shape, as would our wildlife. Hopefully people kill themselves off before it’s to late, or at least use so much of our resources that our society dwindles down to the smartest of us who see the writing on the wall.
if you want to end elite rule, we need to create an internet democracy. it wouldnt be tyranny of the masses because only ideas and initatives that are selfless, of, for, and by the people would gain the majority of support. we need a government think tank to tap the creative human potential and to find the best and brightest ideas and initiatives.
Am I the only one who finds the “Plant More Trees” adverts a trifle offensive? They seem to be saying “plant more trees so you can use them as cover in battle,” and they really provoke a lot of connection to the War on Terror that might push a few unintended buttons.
I kind of see how the plant more trees ads could be misconstrued, but I took it as saying “You should have planted more trees instead of either a. enlisting in the army and ending up dead in an illegal war or, b. the gvmnts should be planting trees instead of starting wars. ”
Either way, whoever is doing these ads is insanely creative and a top notch designer. I liked the ones with the animals as bums and the tiger made out of little tigers demonstrating their population decline.
For those going back and forth about global warming, it’s really irrelevant. Our current way of life is unsustainable regardless of climate change. There is a mass extinction going on that is a direct result of our way of life regardless of climate change.
It’s not the Earth that is really in trouble, we are just making it impossible for our species to have a future here. If we die, it’ll recover once we aren’t putting all these strains on it. But is that the result you really want?
But anyways, it has been conclusively accepted by the scientific community that despite the natural and known cooling and warming trends, that the current warming trend is either caused or at least being exacerbated by our C02 emissions.
Humans put God in charge? I think you have that backwards bro. It really is a shame what we are leaving behind for our grandchildren to try and fix I know they won’t be able to bring back the animals that we’ve driven into extinction but hopefully they can fix the mess we have made of the planet. if not them them then who their children or grandchildren I don’t know what I do know is that it didn’t happen over night so it won’t get fixed over night either. It’s going to be a long hard road for a lot of dedicated people. I hope we and the next generations are up to it!
Wow, great ideas. If only they were good enough to change things. This is something that we must all have to think about and make changes not in others but in oursleves. I love trees, now that it is summer over here, they are the only ones who can give us a fresh shadow toe scape from the sun.
Nice collection about a sad topic. Many of these pictures say so much. Thanks for sharing!
Stunning and thought provoking images. Unfortunately humans have had such a major and detrimental impact on the world that probably within a few hundred more years of complete mismanagement there won’t be much of the old world left. As if we can possibly even understand the intricate systems that have evolved over millions of years into what is a perfect balancing act, its beyond our limited minds. Planting trees isn’t the answer, maybe not felling so many in the first place would help. Many species will dissapear or be condemned to a pathetic life in captivity to protect them from us whilst earning their saviours some cash.
The Earth will be just fine and no matter what we do it will recover, it doesn’t work on our short timescales. Anyhow in 7 billion years the Sun will consume our solar system so you know the what the end game is
Enjoy today and have some consideration for tomorrow…love yourself, your family, your friends..and don’t absorb any of the crap spoonfed to you through the TV, and crappy magazines..your awesome
Nicely illustrated but sadly it misses the main issue. The current growth of the global population and long term desires of the developed world are unsustainable with the available global resources. Stopping global warming, planting trees etc it’s all a quick fix (thou very useful to give time).
If you want to save the world we know, the things that help most are:
1. Have one child at most and encourage this policy at all times. Birth control, condoms, abstaining whatever the simple economics doesn’t care. This is by far the best thing you can do. Even if 3 vegan kids consume less resources than 1 “average” kid. In the next generation, the 9 ecowarriers to the half kid of the single child model won’t.
2. Eat locally made produce indeed the more local the better.
3. Don’t travel by plane. Cheaply broadening your mind is killing the planet. Recovering this carbon footprint is very difficult. Plus even if you do recover it your supporting an industry that certainly does not.
4. Do not buy organic food it’s less efficient land usage. If it went mainstream it would result in bigger farms and less “natural” land. Cows are very inefficient fertilizer synthesis machines cleaner chemical plants are what is needed. (Possibly you could extend this argument to GM but the results aren’t clear yet).
4. Support nuclear as a quick fix until solar gets there. Yes, yes I know this is controversial but kwh/kg it’s by a mile the most efficient standard solution. Plus and very crucially the waste is dangerous but concentrated and thus localized. (The biodiversity increase around the reactor area at chernobyl since the accident shows people are much worse for nature than radiation).
Or you could, live as you pretty much were before. Driving your 4 kids to school with their lunch boxes full of non nestle, organic, non GM foreign produce toting sound bites about deforestation and blaming America (or companies if your American) whilst praying for supernatural intervention.
I think somebody should create at least one day once a Year, when all people just do somethink positive for our Earth ..like plain more trees or recycling what they found around at streets and not to use cars if they have an alternative …
Wow that was very moving! Really breaks my heart what were doing to our planet. As much as the few people that care try to stop it, there are just too many idiots that just don’t care. It’s very sad. I wish everyone could look at these and then actually do something about it. But that will unfortunately never happen.
Interesting read. There is currently quite a lot of information around this subject around and about on the net and some are most defintely better than others. You have caught the detail here just right which makes for a refreshing change – thanks.
Does such a depressing ad campaign help them?
The pictures are so sad it looks hopeless and beyond help!
I had never seen those campaigns. The dead soldiers are really shocking images, not to take anything away from the other ones. WWF do seem to do a lot of good work, but I worry about the constant overlap in charities, especially here in the UK.
