In 2007, TRAFFIC, WWF, the conservation organization and Ogilvy, an advertising agency, launched an advertising campaign in mainland China aimed at changing consumer attitudes towards unsustainable wildlife trade.
The campaign, consisting of creative print, video and online advertisements in Chinese, is part of an awareness-raising project to inform urban consumers about the environmental harm that illegal and unsustainable wildlife trade causes, and by providing guidance on what actions they can take to help protect species.
Campaign poster: Graphic images depict the long evolutionary history of a particular species, ending abruptly at the use that threatens its survival.
Campaign video: depicts the sudden end to Tiger evolution. It was shown at a Beijing subway station and on TV stations around mainland China.
