Use it or Lose It.

For the guys who still don't have the perfect gift for that special someone, maybe you're considering using your God-endowed gift? (After wrapping it up of course!) Here's another benefit of wrapping it up, according to the The Center for Biological Diversity, it can save the dwarf seahorse!

This holiday season, The Center is handing out 25,000 free Endangered Species Condoms in all 50 states. Why? The Center hopes to raise awareness of the devastating effects of human population growth and over consumption on endangered plants and animals. According to their press release:

"More than 200,000 people are added to the planet every day and, according to the United Nations, global human population could reach nearly 10 billion by 2050. As the human population grows, wildlife pays the price as wildlife habitat is developed, air and water are polluted and the climate crisis deepens."

Baby, it's cold outside. Let's warm up.

The condoms are wrapped in bright colorful packages and feature six different endangered species with tongue-in cheek phrases, such as "Don't go Bare...Panthers are Rare" and "In the Sack? Save the Leatherback."

Each package contains two condoms (we can certainly get beastly) and information on the species featured, facts about unsustainable human population growth (from all that wild loving), its link to the extinction crisis, and suggestions on how the human population might be stabilized.

So next time you feel hungry like the wolf, remember that if you "wrap with care... [you can] save the polar bear."

Let's get it on.
