Masungi Georeserve, a conservation area in the Philippines in Baras, Rizal, has joined in on the fun by taking the meme and making it more meaningful. In the conservation area's Facebook page's own words, they've done it "landscape restoration style."

"In the 1990's, Masungi's limestone formations and forests were devasted by rampant logging and land speculation, among others," the post reads. "Thankfully, the area became part of a joint venture project between the DENR and Masungi Georeserve Foundation's mother company, Blue Star, leading to sustained protection of the threatened landscape for over twenty years!"

Masungi Georeserve Foundation has also taken the time to invite people to sign a petition to support the conservation and restoration project for the long haul. Check out the Save Masungi From Quarrying petition here.
