Lacoste released polo featuring endangered species

The Lacoste brand, in collaboration with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), has released a limited collection of polos. In ten models, instead of the traditional crocodile, ten endangered species of animals are depicted: the Iberian lynx, the northern bryce-billed wombat, the antelope Mendes, the northern smooth whale, the Philippine pigeon-dragonfly, the Hawaiian monk seal and others.

T-shirts of each model were released exactly as many individuals of this species remained on the planet. For example, there were 1,400 Hawaiian monk seals, and 50 Filipino dragonfly-legged pens. A total of 3,520 polos were made.

Polo will go on sale May 22, the International Day for Biological Diversity. You can buy them in the online store and in nine more stores around the world (unfortunately, there are no Russian cities among the stores). Polos will cost 185 dollars. All proceeds will go to the IUCN Endangered Species Conservation Program.
