Canadian Sea Turtle Network

Free the Leatherback DM Piece

Agency: Target


‘Free the leatherback’ is a cause driven by the Canadian Sea Turtle Network (CSTN) – a grassroots group based in Nova Scotia, Canada working to help free this critically endangered turtle from commercial fishing gear. CSTN was featured in National Geographic Magazine, so to promote their unique work and their cause, the magazines were sent out, wrapped in fishing net. A personalized, hand-written note was attached to the magazine, informing people of the article and driving them to the Free The Leatherback website. In order to retrieve the note, people had to cut the net to ‘free’ the leatherback article in the magazine.

This professional campaign titled 'Free the Leatherback DM Piece' was published in Canada in June, 2009. It was created for the brand: Canadian Sea Turtle Network, by ad agency: Target. This Direct medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 14 years ago.
