Center For Biological Diversity Launches The Endangered Species Condom Project

The Center For Biological Diversity has launched the Endangered Species Condom Project to promote awareness for the effects that human population growth has on both plant and wildlife.

Specifically, overpopulation has a direct impact on increasing extinction rates, with thousands of species growing more threatened: 12% of mammals, 12% of birds, 31% of reptiles, 30% of amphibians, and 37% of fish (as noted by Center for Biological Diversity).

As part of the project, The Center For Biological Diversity will distribute 100,000 free (Lifestyles) condoms with the help of thousands of volunteers. As part of the education process, the condoms will be enclosed in six special packages, each highlighting a different endangered species as designed by Lori Lieber: the polar bear, snail darter, spotted owl, American burying beetle, jaguar, and coquí guajón rock frog.

You can learn more about overpopulation and extinction rates at the project’s website where you can also donate or volunteer to help.
