The slogans that can be seen in six different original artwork packages include: “Wrap with care, save the polar bear”, “Wear a jimmy hat, save the big cat” (jaguar), “Hump smarter, save the snail darter”, “Cover your tweedle, save the burying beetle”, “Use a stopper, save the hopper” and “Wear a condom now, save the spotted owl”.

It will be distributed by about 3,000 volunteers in bars, concerts, parties, schools, supermarkets, and other public places.

The campaign is partnered with a website called Endangered Species Condom. It has explanations regarding the overpopulation. It also provides a venue where you can donate, signup to be a volunteer distributor or enter a raffle where you can win lifetime supply of condoms (5 winners).

The current human population is at 6.8 billion, which is project to reach 9 billion by 2050.
