TUCSON, Ariz.- For Valentine’s Day the Center for Biological Diversity is sending 4,000 free Endangered Species Condoms to some of the most romantic getaway cities in North America. From Bar Harbor, Maine, to Santa Fe, N.M., the condoms will be given away by volunteers to raise awareness about how runaway human population growth affects endangered species around the globe.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to spread a message of love by speaking out about human population growth and endangered species protection,” said Taralynn Reynolds, population and sustainability organizer at the Center. “Endangered Species Condoms are a great way to start the conversation about how our actions have impacts on polar bears, panthers and other critically endangered species.”

The condoms – wrapped in colorful packages featuring six different endangered species – are being distributed by volunteers in cities recently ranked by USA TODAY as the most romantic getaway cities in the United States, including St. Paul, Minn.; Savannah, Ga.; Charleston, S.C.; New Orleans; Naples, Fla.; and Honolulu.

More than a half-million Endangered Species Condoms have been given away since 2009.
