Our Most Popular Facebook Photos of 2013
from Wildlife Promise
It’s no secret that photos are a critical part of communicating the beauty and importance of nature, and this pertains to National Wildlife Federation’s Facebook page as well. Within seconds, a photo can catch someone’s attention and evoke strong emotions. We use photos every day to “inspire a love of wildlife and desire to protect it.” We wanted to share with you some of the photos our Facebook community loved enough to share with their family and friends. It’s a high compliment when our community gets behind our work and these are the photos our Facebook community liked best in 2013.
