Today we reached out to SolarWinds. They propose that the thing that may be blocking your network is a white rhinoceros! Eye catching and effective. But three of the five species of rhinos are listed as endangered. We suggested they support International Rhino Foundation or Save the Rhino International, and attract more customers by doing it.
Not just advertising at Image Wild! Today we reached out to Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive to ask them to support conservation of the wildlife featured in their fantastic Red Dead Redemption 2. Arthur Morgan’s spirit animal is a white-tailed deer. It seems fitting that they contribute to a group like Whitetails Unlimited. We believe that their support for wildlife could be important to some potential customers.
Today we reached out to Farmers Insurance about their Hall of Claims series and the commercial “Close Claws.” A cougar on the hood of a car is distracted by two guys using a laser pointer. A great commercial that leverages the caution people have about cougars and how all cats seem to share the same behaviors. We encouraged them to support Mountain Lion Foundation in their more than 30 years of work to conserve America’s Lion.
Today we reached out to Liberty Mutual Insurancel about their LiMu Emu and Doug commercials. I am happy to say that emus are doing well in Australia in general, even pests in some areas, but I can’t say the same for all flightless birds. Ostriches are declining, some rhea species are as well, and some kiwi species face challenges. We encouraged Liberty Mutual Insurance to support groups like BirdLife Australia
A fantastic post on Owl Things Considered’s blog site about owls in commercials. http://owlthingsconsidered.org/category/owl-commercials/. Way to go!
Today we reached out to Darktrace, who have used a great image of a jaguar staring down a cobra in their cyber security advertising. We encouraged them to support jaguar conservation.
An exciting step, our first introductory video is now available at https://youtu.be/sC3MsSPrRiA
My first editing effort, and a lot of learning involved. But I had fun, and more videos and other outreach are coming. Exciting times.
Like our Image Wild page on Facebook, under http://www.facebook.com/imagewildinc. There we will post updates on advertisers who use wildlife in their work, Image Wild activities, and news.
On July 18, Image Wild was designated a 501(c)3 non-profit organization by the US Internal Revenue Service. This an exciting milestone for Image Wild. Donations are now tax deductible, and we can apply to foundations that require that status.
