The Center for Biological Diversity explains how condoms can save wildlife:
The Earth’s population now tops 7 billion people. The rapid growth of our human population is pushing other species off the planet in what most scientists are calling the sixth mass extinction crisis. Yet this population explosion is too often ignored by the public, the media and even the environmental movement, while it continues to drive all the major environmental problems that plague our planet — including climate change, habitat loss, ocean acidification and resource depletion.
The Center has been distributing Endangered Species Condoms since 2009, using the cute, rhyming slogans and cool illustrations from Roger Pete to remind people at concerts, bars, universities, spiritual group meetings, farmers’ markets and local events around the United States.
While I doubt the condoms themselves get used much, the artwork makes a fine collector’s item. And for a longterm awareness campaign, having people hold on to the “literature” (and show it to their friends) is a pretty great result.
