Natural World: In Our Hands
IN OUR HANDS ONLINE CAMPAIGN – FACEBOOK, TWEET, FLICKR OR EMAIL YOUR PHOTO TODAY!
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) have launched a global online campaign called In Our Hands in celebration and acknowledgment of World Environment Day on Sunday 5 June.
FFI’s In Our Hands will highlight the plight of endangered species worldwide. People everywhere are asked to upload a photograph of themselves holding a piece of A4 paper with the name of an endangered species written on it.
The photo can be of any quality, even taken on a phone, and can to be uploaded to one or more of the social media channels below. You can also send your photos to email@example.com.
- Change your Facebook profile photo to you holding up your species sign
- Add an #InOurHands Twibbon to your profile picture
- Post your photos to the Fauna & Flora International Facebook wall.
- Tweet a photo of yourself holding up your species sign
- Use the hashtag #InOurHands
- Mention @FaunaFloraInt if you can
- Join our Natural World: In Our Hands group on Flickr
- Post your own species sign photos to our Natural World: In Our Hands group on Flickr
As the library of images grow, so too will global awareness not only of the futures of thousands of species on the brink of extinction, but also of human involvement in it – from both negative and positive angles. These images will create a link from the people championing them, directly back to the species they’ve written on their paper sign.
Anyone can upload a photo – all we need is a head and torso photograph of you, landscape preferably, holding in your hands a white A4 sign, with the name of an endangered species hand written in texta/marker pen.
Interesting backgrounds would be brilliant, but not necessary.
We have asked our staff and partners across the world to kick off In Our Hands by submitting photos of themselves. Our people work tirelessly, often remotely and in cities, on the ground, in the field and in offices, some makeshift, others more permanent, day after day, to conserve species, habitat and life on earth.
Please help us by submitting your photo and spreading the word to your social networks. We have two weeks from launch to get as many images up as possible.
Please help us.
The future of the natural world is In Our Hands.
