WWF Uses Pandas for Climate March Message: 'Save the Humans'

5,000 T-shirts distributed before the march began.

ICN is live-blogging the People's Climate March. Here's a field update from 12:00 PM EDT.

NEW YORK CITY, New York—World Wildlife Fund marchers are decked out in white T-shirts that show a panda saying "Save the Humans." Lou Leonard, WWF's vice president for climate change, said that so far he is blown away by the response. 

 "I mean, look around, right?" he said, pointing to the crowd.

 WWF originally had aimed to get 1,000 people to the march. They had 2,000 RSVPs, and handed out all their 5,000 T-shirts long before the march began.
