Practicing responsible reproduction

Here’s an initiative that a friend at Tufts sent me:

“Through a network of volunteers, the Center for Biological Diversity is giving away 100,000 free Endangered Species Condoms in 2011 as part of our 7 Billion and Counting campaign. The condoms are an engaging, lively way to get people talking about the unsustainable growth of the human population — which has now hit 7 billion — and the effect it’s having on the extinction of species around the globe…

To help people understand the impact of overpopulation on other species, and to give them a chance to take action in their own lives, the Center is distributing free packets of Endangered Species Condoms depicting six separate species: the polar bear, snail darter, spotted owl, American burying beetle, jaguar, and coquí guajón rock frog…

To help ensure a world that is livable for other species — and healthy and prosperous for us — practice responsible reproduction and learn more about the Center’s campaign to addressoverpopulation.”

Tweet us slogans for your mascots! So far I have “Don’t get ballpox, save the smallpox” and “Better than a dental dam, save the Bantam”
