Gisele Bündchen is Joining United Nation’s Wild for Life Campaign
The retired model, who has been a goodwill ambassador for the United Nation’s environment program since 2009, is one of the faces of the UN’s newest “Wild for Life Campaign.” The campaign seeks to raise awareness of, and fight against, the illegal poaching and trade of wildlife, which is threatening extinction to variety of animals.
“Much of the world’s wildlife is facing extinction. To overcome this we need a radical change in people’s attitude all over the world, so today I’m joining the fight to save these endangered species,” Bündchen said on her social media accounts.This is not the first time the former model has spoken out and advocated for protecting endangered animals.
It saddens me that in the 21st century there are still many endangered wildlife species. Continued poaching still threatening to wipe out populations of rhinos and elephants. If we want a better future, we also have to take care of the wildlife. If you hurt one species you´re hurting them all, including us humans. I would like to invite everyone to take part in this campaign to end Illegal Trade in Wildlife by simply spreading the word wherever you can. It is also important not to buy illegal wildlife of any kind. I believe we create our own reality by making choices, and we are the only ones capable of changing the reality we live in.#InOurHands #WorldWildlifeDay #WWD2016 #love @dswt ???? Me entristece saber que em pleno século 21 ainda existam muitas espécies selvagens ameaçadas de extinção. A caça ilegal ameaça dizimar as populações de rinocerontes e elefantes, por exemplo. Se queremos um futuro melhor, também temos de cuidar da vida selvagem. Se você fere uma espécie, está ferindo a todas, incluindo nós, seres humanos. Gostaria de convidar a todos para participar desta campanha para acabar com o comércio ilegal de animais selvagens, compartilhando essas informações como puder. Também é importante não comprar nenhum tipo de vida selvagem. Acredito que criamos nossa própria realidade através das escolhas que fazemos e somos os únicos capazes de mudar a realidade em que vivemos.
