Wild for con­doms

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - WORLD -

PITTS­BURGH: An en­vi­ron­men­tal group wants cou­ples to think of wild an­i­mals be­fore act­ing like them this Valen­tine’s Day. The Cen­tre for Bi­o­log­i­cal Di­ver­sity handed out en­dan­gered species con­doms at the Carnegie Sci­ence Cen­tre’s adults-only Valen­tine’s event in Pitts­burgh on Fri­day.

The wrap­pers fea­tured colour­ful art­work and slo­gans like “Be­fore it gets any hot­ter… re­mem­ber the sea ot­ter,” and “Can’t re­frain? Think of the whoop­ing crane.”

The group hoped to show how hu­man pop­u­la­tion growth neg­a­tively af­fected wildlife.
