People are trying different ways to convey a message on saving wildlife in different ways. Another beautiful effort to raise awareness about animals is made by World Wildlife Fund, upon closer look, you realize that the pixels represent the number of species that are currently alive the blurrier the image, the fewer the numbers. It’s a heart-breaking yet fantastic campaign that brings awareness to the endangered species problem. (WWF) this has been resurfacing thanks to a recent Reddit post going viral. The campaign, called WWF Japan – Population by pixel, was created by the agency Hakuhodo C&D / Tokyo. The brains behind it were creative directors Nami Hoshino, Yoshiyuki Mikami, and designer Kazuhiro Mochizuki. Inspired by their work, Imgurian JJSmooth44 made a follow-up to their project and it’s just as powerful as the original. “I did it as a programming challenge,” JJSmooth44 wrote.


“I did it … in python … but the code is very gross. I only worried about the final product and not the readability/niceness of the code.” They paid homage to Hakuhodo C&D / Tokyo by scraping the Animal Planet endangered animals list.
