Condoms are also being used to promote greater awareness about the connections between sex, population growth, and environmental degradation. The Tucson, Arizona-based Center for Biological Diversity distributed 100,000 free condoms for Valentine’s Day this year. Called Endangered Species Condoms, the packaging explains that overpopulation threatens to kill off tens of thousands of plants and animals. Decor­ating the boxes is artwork depicting threatened wildlife and slogans such as “Wrap with care, save the polar bear” or “Cover your tweedle, save the burying beetle.”
