In 2015, the Romanian Parliament was about to pass a new Hunting Law, that would have started a real song birds massacre. The new provisions included hunting on fields without the consent of the owner and lifting all restrictions for the foreign bird hunters. Romania was the last country in the European Union to allow hunters to take down skylarks, so we had to stop this.
We started a campaign that created national and international buzz and actually changed the law allowing song birds to be killed, all in one month, with zero budget. The campaign was also awarded in many creative competitions, the most important awards being 1 Cannes Gold Lion and 1 Gold Effie.
We released a video starring Andreea Ilie, a famous opera singer. It immediately vent viral:
Then, on our website we gathered all the information to make people adhere to the cause. Not many Romanians cared about song birds, or knew about what was about to happen. We invited them to sign a petition, and the results were amazing.
