Teamwork for endangered species
Preppy polo shirts are getting a makeover to highlight the plight of endangered species.

In collaboration with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), sportswear brand Lacoste is temporarily booting its iconic crocodile embroidery from the chest of a limited number of its polos in favor of 10 species on the brink of extinction.
