I have recently stumbled across the works of “Cynical conservation”, a cartoonist who shares his cynical drawings on twitter. Most likely to be based in the UK, he (?) describes himself as a “Cynical conservationist, illustrating my frustrations to remain sane and purge demons”.
I have extracted some of the more relevant related to offsets, ecosystem services and nowadays problems and inconsequences with nature conservation. The illustrations are really cynical (who would expect that? ;o)) and usually exaggerated, but also quite philosophic. Have a look yourself!
