Robyn Lawley posted a NSFW instagram picture, where she was naked, to protest a coalmine project in Queensland.

Australian model Robyn Lawley stripped down naked to protest a coal mine project off the coast of Queensland.  The native country’s government recently approved the plan and the 25-year-old beauty used her body to convey her stance on the political issue.

''Coal is soon going to be a dead commodity only bought buy [sic] irresponsible countries who do not care about climate change and the damage on the world. I’m shocked and feel powerless so I decided to get people to read this one way or another, we have to stop them.....before its [sic] too late,'' she wrote to her 65,900 followers.

The post attracted nearly 2,000 likes after the 25-year-old shared the image on Monday. Underneath the bottom of her breasts reads “Stop coal mining” and then her lower unmentionables were blotted out with a black strip.

Lawley, an environment activist, has an Instagram profile picture that says “I don’t support dumping on the reef” and her tagline of the picture social media site is a quote from American anthropologist Margaret Mead that says, “We won’t have a society if we destroy our environment.”

The model rose to fame after she appeared on Vogue Italia and Vogue Australia’s first plus-size issues in 2011. The Australian, who is now based in New York, was speaking out about the Carmichael coal mine project that Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt approved on Monday, the Sydney Morning Herald wrote.

''Heres [sic] some more facts about this particular mine 28 thousand hectares big, taking over 20 thousand hectares of native bushland 4 x fossil fuel emissions than the country of New Zealand 12 billion liters [sic] of water per year with the coalmine to have a lifespan of 90 years the extinction of the black throated finch for a mine owned by Adani -- instead of joining countries such as Germany and introducing more renewable energy to protect our great land for us and future generations, we continue to go backwards,'' she wrote on Instagram.

As pointed out by the SMH, Lawley isn’t the first Australian model to use her body to promote a cause. Abbey Lee Kershaw showed up to the 2013 Met Gala with “Gun Control” written on the torso in black ink.
