this essay I edited for The Revelator about sports teams using endangered species as their mascots (but not sharing appropriate conservation messages about those same species).
What other sports teams and mascots could be rebranded for conservation purposes? I've got a few ideas.
The Green Bay Packers could become the Green Bay Pachyderms.
The Chicago Cubs would change their name to the Chicago Grizzlies, while the Bulls would become the Chicago Tamaraws.
The members of the New York Yankees would soon play for the New York Yellowhammers or the Clubshells (a type of mussel).
The Boston Red Sox would have a lot of choices: the Boston Red Wolves, Redwings, Sockeyes...the possibilities are endless.
The New Orleans Saints could be the New Orleans Gopher Tortoises (a local species).
I could go on...but I think this is a good start!
