I came across this interesting advertisement through a friend on facebook. Greenpeace is out to remind us that Atlantic cod levels are running so low that they are at risk of irreversible damage. Continued fishing might possibly wipe out the entire species. Not only is this problem with cod, but many other sealife species around the world.
The curious part of the advertisement is that Greenpeace has mimicked our atheist ad style to try and garner more attention. What a great idea. They have purchased four weeks of advertising time on buses and a billboard in Halifax, and one billboard in Ottawa.
