We, of course, care about animals here at BuzzFeed. We assume you do, too.

1. It's sad, but many politicians do care more about keeping fucking walls clean than they do about cleaning the eco-system.

21. The copy is a bit clunky, because the ads are translated. But they're still ads that deliver a gut-punch.

34. This is how to do an online "save the animals" campaign. Brilliant. Rhinos, right now, have about 10 years left. Does that bother you at all?
