Entertain Impact secured U.S. and international influencer support for World Animal Protection’s “Widen the Lens” campaign, which asks us to pull back and see the bigger picture behind wild animal selfies.
Amazonian animals are being torn from their natural habitats, stressed and in danger so that tourists can take selfies to post on social media.

The campaign exceeded the World Animal Protection’s goals but the biggest takeaway is that as a result of this campaign, Instagram launched a new content advisory page on December 4th, educating users about the issues animal selfies cause for the animals.
