These condoms spread awareness about endangered animals

Endangered Animals Vanish At Zoos Nationwide, But Why?

Spreading awareness about endangered species is important, but the Center for Biological Diversity just took it to a whole new level: The environmental advocacy group is using condoms to encourage people to save animals in danger of extinction.

With phrases like "For the sake of the horned lizard, slow down, love wizard" and "Can't refrain? Remember the whooping crane" -- to name a few -- you can't help but admit that this campaign in hilariously clever.

Other featured animals include the burying beetle ("Cover your tweedle, save the burying beetle") and the Florida panther ("Don't go bare, panthers are rare").

The distribution of the condoms is very well thought through, too. The Center for Biological diversity has distributed 10,000 condoms per year for several years now, just in time to coincide with the U.N.'s World Population Day, which was on July 11 this year.

The Center for Biological Diversity said that their goal is to "help volunteers start the conversation about the impact of runaway human population growth on polar bears, monarch butterflies and other imperiled wildlife."

While the condoms themselves don't display the witty sayings or pictures of the animals, you can find the witty words and images on the condom packages.
