BiolDiv_CB_Polar-BearWith 3,000 volunteers operating in all 50 states, the Center for Biological Diversity will distribute 100,000 free condoms beginning on Valentine’s Day and has launched a web site chronicling the impact of human overpopulation on endangered species.

Additional free condoms will be distributed through the site, and five people will win a lifetime condom supply.

Six different packages feature the polar bear (“Wrap with care, save the polar bear”), jaguar (“Wear a jimmy hat, save the big cat”), American burying beetle (“Cover your tweedle, save the burying beetle”), snail darter (“Hump smarter, save the snail darter”), coquguan rock frog (“Use a stopper, save the hopper”), and spotted owl (“Wear a condom now, save the spotted owl”). All six species are listed as threatened or endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

POLAR BEAR
The international icon of global warming, the polar bear is going extinct as the Arctic sea ice melts beneath its feet due to the greenhouse gas emissions of 6.8 billion people, especially those in high-consumption nations like the United States. The bear was put on the endangered species list in 2008.

BiolDiv_CB_DarterSNAIL DARTER
The snail darter lives in just nine populations in the Tennessee River drainage in eastern Tennessee. Its habitat has been severely reduced by dams constructed to provide water, power, and barge transportation to a rapidly growing human population. It was put on the endangered species list in 1975.

SPOTTED OWL
The spotted owl depends on old-growth forests, which are being cut down to supply timber, wood fiber, and toilet paper to an ever-growing human population. It was put on the endangered species list in the Northwest in 1990 and the Southwest in 1993.

AMERICAN BURYING BEETLE
The large, spectacularly colored American burying beetle has disappeared from more than 90 percent of its former range due to disruption of its food chain by humans, including the human-caused decline of top predators like wolves and bears and carrion species such as passenger pigeons. The beetle was put on the endangered species list in 1989.

BiolDiv_CB_JaguarJAGUAR
The largest cat in North America, the jaguar formerly roamed the borderlands of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. It disappeared as human settlements spread further and further into its wilderness habitat. The U.S. population was put on the endangered species list in 1997.

COQU? GUAJ?N ROCK FROG
The Puerto Rico rock frog, also known as the coquí guajón, lives in caves, grottos, and streamsides in southeast Puerto Rico. It was put on the endangered species list in 1997 due to destruction of its habitat by urban sprawl and roads, garbage dumping, deforestation, and pesticide poisoning.
