This is very random I know, but I’ve always wondered why the Worldwide Wildlife Fund chose a panda bear as their logo. Out of all the wildlife they could’ve picked.
For #WorldWildlifeDay, we’re imagining a #WorldWithoutNature by removing the iconic panda from our logo. Nature loss impacts every aspect of our lives, and our relationship with nature is at a crossroads. Will we love it, or lose it? Learn more: https://t.co/XWVKolACmb pic.twitter.com/v5KWrnz4aO

The answer is pretty funny actually. It all comes down to saving money. The panda being black and white cuts down on the cost of printing. Which makes total sense. I guess they could’ve went with a zebra or skunk too, but the panda seems more cuddly.
You know what wouldn’t be cheap to print? A parrot logo!
