In celebration of Earth Day 2021, Project Headshot Clinic and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines bring you, #OneWorld2021. This is a “Collaborative Photo Campaign” that highlights the beauty and diversity of our natural habitats. This involves the participants’ photos sent to Project Headshot Clinic to be digitally post-processed into beautiful artworks.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a painful wake-up call, revealing our fractured relationship with nature. It is also a reminder that everything is connected. Our health, our economies, animal health, and the natural environment are all interlinked. Tackling problems in siloes is no longer an option. We must create solutions that respect these interconnections, and we need those solutions fast.
We need to implement a one world, one health approach in which nature and human health are linked together to achieve life-saving outcomes. Together, we will secure a new deal for nature and people!

The Philippine Eagle or Haring Ibon is one of the biggest and strongest raptors in the world. Their preferred habitats include primary forests in the lowlands and at mid-elevation. However, the Philippines has lost almost 75 percent of its forests, mainly due to illegal logging. Hunting and deforestation are the major threats to the survival of this majestic bird. Let this campaign serve as a reminder to take care of these majestic creatures and their habitat.
Over the last 200 years, human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of the sea turtle considered as ancient mariners. Slaughtered for their eggs, meat, skin, and shells, sea turtles suffer from poaching and over-exploitation and habitat destruction. Let this campaign serve as a reminder to take care of these majestic creatures and their habitat.
