Here we have six photos. These photos were posted for a combined 375,000 followers to see. All the "Influencers" in these photos appear to be trampling wild flowers. None of them said anything about proper wildflower behavior in their original posts. These photos shout "it's ok to go off trail and kill wildflowers for cool pics" to 375,000 people. Imagine the impact of just 1% of those people following in these "Influencers" footsteps. 1% is 3,500 people wandering through the flowers, creating new trails, hindering the ability of the next generation of wild flowers from creating this beauty for the rest of us next year. These people should be using their influence for the greater good. Not this. All of these "Influencers" have been informed that what they are doing is wrong. And yet, here are these pictures. Still up. Gathering likes. And suggesting that this kind of behavior is ok. I think I'm going to be sick. Share this with everyone you know who loves our public lands. We can make a difference together. #forprofit #profitfirst #publiclandshateyou#protectourplaces #deathby1000cuts#disrespect #selfish #ignorance#peoplesuck #illegal #publiclands#superbloom #superbloom2019 #poppy#poppyfield #ourpubliclands#protectyourpubliclands#seesomethingsaysomething #wildflowers#wildflower #trampled #flowers#highimpact #leavenotrace
