This Valentine's Day: 40,000 Endangered Species Condoms
What better way to get people talking about wildlife and human population than thousands of free Endangered Species Condoms on the most romantic holiday of the year?
Yep, this year the Center distributed 40,000 condoms for Valentine's Day. The colorful condom packages include species threatened by population growth and slogans like "Wrap with care, save the polar bear" and "When you're feeling tender, think about the hellbender."
