Cara Delevingne goes bare for a new anti-poaching campaign.

The cause is close to the model’s heart, following the unlawful slaying of Cecil the lion last summer. The I Am Not A Trophy campaign is a global initiative to bring awareness to the practice of trophy hunting and poaching of endangered species.

Delevingne got involved after a supermodel pal introduced her to campaign photographer Arno Elias.

“I was introduced to Arno’s work after falling in love with the images he did for my friend and fellow model, Suki Waterhouse,”; she tells Marie Claire. “Suki put us in touch and before we knew it we were in Paris shooting together.”;
