Influencer marketing has become a hot trend in social media. And with more than 800 million active users on Instagram, influencers can truly amplify a message and deliver real results for brands, especially amongst social media savvy Gen Z and Millennial audiences. Leveraging the popular platform, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) launched a simple, eye-opening campaign to showcase the effects of environmental destruction. 

Playing off the popular #Latergram hashtag, the WWF partnered with nine travel influencers to launch its own #TooLatergram campaign. The influencers posted beautiful images of the WWF’s Priority Places and received hundreds of comments from users saying they’d like to visit the location.
