Silver Faced World Wildlife Fund Panda T-shirt

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Most people know of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for its position as the leading organisation in wildlife conservation and endangered species, recognised by its unmistakable symbolic giant panda logo.

The inspiration behind WWF's logo came from Chi-Chi, a giant panda that arrived at London Zoo in 1961, the same year WWF established.

Giant pandas are on the brink of extinction, with just over 1,000 pandas left in the world, although there might be a little silver lining for the endangered species, with scientists hoping to increase wild panda population to 5,000 by 2025. *source

Speaking of silver linings, I have a grey WWF t-shirt with its world universal trademark panda logo printed on the front.

To celebrate the endangered beauty associated with the world's most prominent conservation organisation, I have embroidered silver thread to the outline of sweet little panda face. I didn't have enough thread to to give him a complete make-over, a sparkly face will have to do...

"I live in a zoo that is true
however China is my home
We Pandas are becoming extinct
freely we do not roam"

I gotta say. I love your posts, but not this one. green groups like WWF spend a lot of time misleading people in order to get their way. especially in Australia where multiple industries are being targeted by green goups and a lot of families are struggling because of it. My town is one of many that has lost many businesses because of green groups like wwf. in theory they sound like a cool group, but in reality they just give pandas a bad name.
