22 Pictures of Animals Close to Extinction with a Pixel Representing Each One Still Alive

Back in 2008 the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) produced a saddening campaign entitled WWF Japan – Population by pixel. The hard-hitting campaign showed us just how low the numbers are for certain endangered species, using a unique visual representation of one pixel per animal still alive. Sadly some of the pictures have so few pixels, making it impossible to see the species in question.

A man named JJSmooth44 has created an up-to-date set of images using the python programming language and the results are upsetting.
