News from the Natural World: Netflix has launched a new plan to save Critically Endangered Animals.
Netflix has launched a radical new strategy to help save the worlds Critically Endangered Animals. The streaming giant knew it needed to create something which would benefit the natural world after its profits soared due to the worldwide COVID-19 lockdown. Because the pandemic was caused by the destruction of nature and intermingling of humans with wild animals Netflix wanted to help. So Netflix has launched its all new strategy called “Netflix Royale”.
Netflix chose 10 of the worlds most critically endangered animals. These were the Amur Leopard, Maui Dolphin, Tapanuli Orangutan, Vaquita, Javan Rhino, Scottish Wildcat, Sumatran Elephant, Saola, Mountain Gorilla and Hawksbill Sea Turtle. These animals were all chosen because their numbers are less than 800 in the wild. Some like the Vaquita and Amur Leopard have less than 50 animals remaining.
“Netflix Royale” to save critically endangered animals
Netflix then created a complex tracking system to record every single animal left in each of the 10 species. What came next was the truly ingenious part. Every single time any animal in one of the 10 species died… Netflix would remove a series at random from the platform. However that wasn’t even the really clever part. They also announced that they would only return that series to the platform when the Critically Endangered Animals number rose above the previous level. Netflix could never have predicted what would happen next.
Jeff from Manhattan, New York was halfway through the second series of Stranger Things. He was just getting into the nitty gritty parts, was Eleven going to close the gate? But halfway through episode 7 his screen went blank. “Stranger Things had been deleted” flashed across his TV. This was because a poacher had shot an Amur Leopard in far eastern Russia. Jeff called Netflix who confirmed that the message was indeed true. The only way Jeff could see what happened was if Amur Leopard numbers rebounded.
