New Twist to Overpopulation

Endangered Species Condom Project Launched for Valentine's Day

Just in time for Valentine's Day, this morning the Center for Biological Diversity's network of more than 3,000 volunteers began distributing 100,000 free Endangered Species Condoms in every state in the United States. We also launched a new Web site -- -- to distribute additional free condoms, educate people about how human overpopulation is crowding other species off the planet, and give people a chance to win free condoms for life.

The condoms come in six different packages with original artwork and edgy slogans featuring the polar bear ("Wrap with care, save the polar bear"), jaguar ("Wear a jimmy hat, save the big cat"), American burying beetle ("Cover your tweedle, save the burying beetle"), snail darter ("Hump smarter, save the snail darter"), coquí guajón rock frog ("Use a stopper, save the hopper"), and spotted owl ("Wear a condom now, save the spotted owl").

"Human overpopulation is destroying wildlife habitat at an unprecedented rate," said Randy Serraglio, a conservation advocate leading the Center's overpopulation campaign.
"All of the major threats to the earth's biodiversity -- sprawl, logging, mining, dams, pollution, and climate change -- are driven by human overpopulation. Our Endangered Species Condoms are designed to capture peoples' attention, get them laughing, and get them talking about the impact of overpopulation on our small and fragile planet."

Check out, pass the link on to your friends, and spread the word about overpopulation.
