Purpose: This poster is about saving wildlife on Earth. If the population of wildlife depletes, the ecology system would be affected. This would lead to a food shortage.
Audience: Everyone(especially poachers)
Context: If no one tries to prevent poaching of endangered animals, it would cause a major disruption in the ecosystem.
Culture: People in different countries have different culture. Some countries poach endangered animals for their outer covering or ivory. These would then be sold to us and the wildlife population would deplete quickly. The people who are “motivating” these poachers are us.
