#ProtectPublicLands on Social Media: Tips and Examples


Join the #ProtectPublicLands social media campaign by tagging (or submitting) photos that help illustrate why it's critical to celebrate, defend and advocate for our public lands. Here's how:

Post your photos of your favorite public lands on Instagram or Twitter and tag the Center using @CenterforBioDiv and add the hashtag #ProtectPublicLands. If you don't have an Instagram or Twitter account, you can email photos to the Center's Clayton Norman to post on the Center's page. Include a caption on treasuring these places and the species they support.

Have questions? Email Clayton Norman.

Check out the #ProtectPublicLands photos and posts on our Instagram page.

What Makes a Great #ProtectPublicLands Photo?

We want to see what the beautiful public lands across our nation look like through your eyes — the forests, rivers, deserts and grasslands that belong to us and whose wellbeing we entrust to our federal agencies.

In your photos let people know where you are, and don't forget to use the #ProtectPublicLands hashtag. For this campaign landscape-oriented or square photos are best. See below for examples. (The first one is similar to what you might see on your phone; the other two are photos and captions you might use.)
