Endangered species condoms may raise awareness

Condoms may save animals.

The Center for Biological Diversity has announced that they will pass out over 50,000 free condoms during the holiday season. The environmental group, which is based in Tucson, will distribute the condoms in all areas of the United States. The goal of the Center for Biological Diversity project is to highlight the immense effects an increase in human population can have on wildlife.

Since the Center for Biological Diversity began passing out free condoms in 2009, the group has distributed over 450,000 condoms across the U.S. The condoms feature pictures of numerous endangered species including polar bears, panthers, and more animals that are part of the endangered species list.
