Palace for Life and Crystal Palace support World Wildlife Day campaign
Palace for Life and Crystal Palace will mark World Wildlife Day on Friday (3rd March, 2023) by temporarily removing the iconic eagle from their crests displayed on their social media accounts, proudly supporting the charity’s #WorldWithoutNature campaign.
The initiative aims to drive awareness of nature and biodiversity loss by demonstrating the emptiness of a world without nature – prompting audiences to look twice at well-known badges which, for one day, are without it.
In doing so, it is hoped that people will consider their own environmental impact at a time when – according to the WWF’s latest Living Planet Report – there has been a staggering 69% average decline of global wildlife populations in less than 50 years.
This year’s #WorldWithoutNature campaign comes amidst a defining year for nature, following a historic global agreement at December’s COP15 summit in Montreal to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030.
Palace will join the likes of upcoming opponents Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion, Huddersfield Town and Hull City in removing images of nature from their social media, alongside several other global sports teams.
Elsewhere, Palace for Life recently also encouraged supporters to represent the club in the Planet Super League, racking up points for Palace by completing a number of fun activities with an environmental impact. According to the initiative’s leaderboards, Palace supporters subsequently saved an estimated 866 kilograms of CO2 emissions in February.
