DescriptionAs part of the anti-fossil fuel movement, the sticker promotes environmental consciousness. The red shell logo for Shell Oil includes devil's horns against the backdrop of a fiery savannah landscape with elephants and giraffes underneath acacia trees. The "f" "wildlife" has been crossed out to read "wildlie." The Shell Oiled Wildlife Web site seeks to educate the public abut the devastating effect of Shells activities on wildlife, on human communities, and on the global climate, as well as its attempt to present a green image through art sponsorship.
