This clever initiative from artist Paulo Grangeon is bound to draw some attention to the plight of endangered animals. He has started a project called “1, 600 Pandas”, to highlight this cause.
An Endangered Species
The adorable black and white fluffy bear is one of the ten animal species that are about to disappear from the world if something isn’t done. It is because of human beings destroying their natural habitat and food sources that their numbers are declining.
Supported by the WWF and PMQ, Paulo made 1, 600 papier mache pandas which is the exact same number of pandas alive in the world today. He has spread the sculptures all around the world, raising awareness about the urgency of the Panda’s situation.
This project does not only highlight the panda’s cause, but also the many other endangered species.
