“Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land” – Aldo Leopold
Cara Delevingne, globally well-known supermodel and actress, has been tagged as the very first ambassador of the I’m Not a Trophy campaign. The organization is founded by French photographer Arno Elias, to raise awareness about the “malicious acts of trophy hunting and poaching of endangered species”.
Elias created the campaign with the intention to shed light on the immeasurably neglected decimation of the world’s wildlife population between the 1940s to the 21st century; specifically the lion, rhino, elephant, cheetah, giraffe, gorilla, leopard and the grevy’s zebra.
“I am extremely passionate about animals and am so honored to be representing an organization and cause that is fighting for the rights of these innocent lives,” said Delevingne as she expressed her eagerness for this campaign in a statement.
In this canvass, she digitally adorns the imagery of the endangered species on her skin to advocate for the diminishing lives of the wildlife population and also to demonstrate freedom and liberation of women in a bid to empower young women.
“Cara is the genuine personification of ‘I’m Not a Trophy’. Truly a woman who plays by her own rules. Cara’s enthusiasm and vivacity are an integral part in brining light to our message of wildlife protection”, says Elias on Delevingne’s appointment as the initiative’s first globally acclaimed icon.
I’M NOT A TROPHY IS AN ORGANIZATION THAT BELIEVES IN SAVING AND PROTECTING THE FUTURE OF WILDLIFE.
