ENVIRONMENT fanatics now have their very own symbol – an hourglass in a black circle
Here we explain what the symbol means, and where it has been used.
WHAT IS THE EXTINCTION REBELLION SYMBOL
The Extinction Rebellion symbol is meant to depict an hourglass – because time is rapidly running out for many species.
The Extinction Symbol was created by London artist ESP in 2011.
Estimates claim that between 30,000 and 140,000 species are at risk of becoming extinct.
The group urge activists to create the symbol in any location they “feel able to” – but refuses to allow it to be used on merchandise.
