Endangered Species Condoms Win Ad Award! Get Yours Today!

The Center for Biological Diversity's wildly popular Endangered Species Condoms are getting some additional love. The colorfully packaged condoms, part of the Center's campaign highlighting the connection between overpopulation and species extinction, recently won the American Advertising Federation's gold ADDY Award in Tucson in the "public service" category.

In case you haven't seen them, the "nifty" condom packages feature illustrations of six different endangered species, along with catchy slogans like "Cover your tweedle, save the burying beetle" and "Wear a jimmy hat, save the big cat."

The Center handed out 350,0000 condoms last year and hopes to send more out soon to draw attention to this crucial issue. Through the empowerment of women, education of all people and universal access to birth control, we can curb our population to an ecologically safe level.

But some members of Congress are making that very hard. In fact, the House has just passed a bill to cut government funding for critical programs like women's health clinics -- which for millions of people provide the only available access to reproductive services, family planning and birth control.
