Emily VanCamp And Josh Bowman "Hands Off My Parts" PSA

Filed under: Animal RightsAnimal Cruelty

Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman from Revenge star in a new PSA for the World Wildlife Foundation.

The PSA is part of the new campaign "Hands Off My Parts" which is trying to raise awareness for the illegal wildlife trade.

So many animals, many of them rare, are killed every year for their fur, horns, bones and more.

That's just terrible! People need to leave the animals alone!!

The WWF released a statement that said:

"WWF is rallying forces globally to raise public awareness and reduce trafficking in endangered species. We’re grateful for the powerful voice celebrities like Emily and Josh are lending to this important cause. The world must take a stand to stop the illegal trade that is emptying our forests and our oceans. Supporting “Hands Off My Parts” is an empowering and simple way for anyone to be a voice for those endangered species who have no voice."

We're so glad Emily and Josh are giving up their time to help the animals.

Check out the video (above) to see their PSA!

Leonardo DiCaprio is a HUGE animal lover.

He's a total eco warrior!

We just know if he wasn't off making our favorite movies, he'd be in Africa, riding rhinos, chasing off poachers.

But because he can't hang out in Africa all the time, he helped launch the World Wildlife Fund's new campaign "Hands Off My Parts."

Tigers are majestic creatures, but their numbers are dwindling at an alarming rate.

The species, once totaling over 100,000 in the wild 100 years ago, is now down to a dismal 3,200 thanks to poachers, illegal trade and habitat destruction, with over 90 percent of their homelands destroyed.

But now, you can help tigers everywhere

Wait…sorry, we were thinking of the WWE…HA!

The World Wildlife Fund has partnered with Yanni to help giant panda conservation. The composer and singer has had a HUGE honor bestowed upon him as he has "adopted" a panda from Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

The partnership has set up a limited edition $50 panda adoption fund, where contributors can symbolically adopt pandas.

Yanni has guaranteed $50,000 from his end, which would equal 1,000 mini adoptions.

Khloe Kardashian Saves Tigers With A Single Tweet

khloe-kardashian-save-tiger.jpg

Khloe Kardashian helped the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) raise thousands of dollar to help save endangered tigers all by simply tweeting:

"By texting TIGERS to 20222, your $10 donation will help WWF save the tiger in its vast range – from India to China, to the Russian Far East."

We're sure it helped that she has 5.6 million followers and that it's a great cause.

Apparently after the tweet, over 600 people texted and the WWF raised over $6,000… and that was just in two days!

The money is going to scientific research in the wild on how to better protect tigers, seeing as how there are less than 3,500 left alive in the wild.

That's why Khloe didn't stop after the tweet. She adopted a tiger online!

Then convinced her mama to do the same.

Way to go, Khloe!
