In an effort to raise awareness for animal conservation programs, Lacoste is ditching their iconic crocodile logo and replacing the logo with the world’s most endangered animals. Each animal logo on the new capsule collection will feature an animal that is on the brink of species-wide extinction.
The new capsule collection is a collaboration between Lacoste and The International Union for Conservation of Nature. What’s cool about this collaboration is that they’ve taken it a step further than just releasing the Polos. Each animal logo polo will be produced in the number of the animal left alive. For example, there are only 450 Anegada ground iguanas left in the world, so Lacoste will only release 450 polos. On the flip side, the Vaquita (similar to a dolphin) polo will only have 30 shirts made as there are only 30 Vaquitas left in the world.
The crocodile is leaving its iconic spot to 10 threatened species through a partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The number of polos produced for each series corresponds to the remaining population sizes in the wild. By buying one of the 1775 polos, you participate in helping IUCN and Lacoste in the fight for wildlife conservation worldwide. Available only in some European countries and in the US – Link in bio. #LacosteSaveOurSpecies
