Privacy Act Statement for ESA Profile Picture Drawing

Endangered Species Act 50th Anniversary Instagram Profile Picture Drawing

To celebrate and promote the 50th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, NOAA Fisheries West Coast asks our Instagram audience to tag our account @noaafisherieswestcoast in a picture of themselves and choose 1-2 endangered or threatened species on the West Coast. Our staff will redraw participants in a doodle with their ocean creatures.

The project aims to promote the ESA 50th while encouraging the audience to learn more about ESA-listed species in a memorable way, making a difficult topic like endangered species accessible and captivating through art, and engaging both our Instagram audience and our staff.
