Testimonial from WWF-Canada
WWF-Canada wanted a vehicle to drive our conservation stories about water health and at-risk marine species to an educated, mainstream audience. The Walrus helped us meet this need by designing a beautiful, multiple-spread supplement inside the magazine’s popular Summer Reading issue. We were thrilled to see notable Canadians, such as photographer Ed Burtynsky, who tweeted his support, engage with the content. We are confident that our conservation success stories reached a knowledgeable audience who cares about the future of our planet. Overall, it was great to be able to showcase our work in such a high-quality publication.
We help like-minded organizations showcase interesting ideas and projects. We leverage social media and our magazine for promotion, our administrative expertise to execute events and contests, and our website to create co-branded digital hubs.
