I think it makes a strong visual statement. Hopefully it's one that many will carry with them long after they've left the zoo.

That's what I was thinking. Imagine the impact this could have on all the little piggies tossing cigarette butts and food wrappers out their car windows?

Those are powerful images, Equilbrium. I'm going to find a way to get them in front of the management of the local zoo (mostly native species). I wonder if it would seem more or less powerful if the animals were those that we see every day, and the scenes were depictions of our backyards or the local park?

Excellent find. The opportunities to use these images in educational programming have no boundaries.

Wonderful way to shout the message to the world.
