I like these endangered species condom wrappers, produced by the Center For Biological Diversity — and not just because they taught me how to correctly pronounce snowy plover, or because I often think about the hellbender when I’m feeling tender. They make an important point about the link between human population growth and the dramatic population decline of other species.
The wrappers were designed by Lori Lieber and the artwork was created by Roger Peet. Don’t share these images without acknowledging them!

"There’s a question that troubles us all from the time we are first able to think…and that is: where did we come from? And this question is so compelling, that we’ve invented the science of astronomy. We’ve discovered these natural laws so that we can learn more about our origin and where we came from. This is what drives us, this is what we want to know - let’s keep looking, let’s keep searching! We have come to be because of the universe’s existence, and we are driven to pursue that - to find out where we came from. The joy of discovery: that’s what drives us. And these questions are deep within us: where did we come from? What was before the Big Bang? To us, this is wonderful and charming and compelling, this is what makes us get up and go to work every day! You are - you and I - at least one of the ways that the universe knows itself. It fills me with joy to make discoveries every day, of things I’ve never seen before…to know that we can pursue these answers."
This obnoxiously long infographic is your reminder to check out this post from earlier today and join me in calling for a stop to the inhumane and unscientific Western Australia shark cull (not to mention shark finning in general, which is an even greater problem)!!
