Help us protect the diversity of species. The world is in a state of radical change and the number of species facing extinction is climbing. With this in mind, we partnered with National Geographic and created a special collection of plush toy animals in support of preserving biodiversity. The collection includes a wide variety of animals that were photographed by Joel Sartore for the National Geographic Photo Ark species preservation project. Your purchase is supporting a good cause! Proceeds from the sale of any National Geographic product support scientists, explorers and researchers from the National Geographic Society all over the world. A new member of our National Graphic collection is Mizzy lynx. He lies down with pride and features a wonderful plush coat in beige and brown. Mizzy lynx is 35 cm in size. The lynx tufts on the ears and the nose are decorated in black. His face is lifelike with an airbrush paint job using ecru, brown and chestnut. The velvety-soft paws and the soles are offset in light brown. A wonderful animal. And yet, Mizzy lynx is on the list of endangered species, where he is ranked as "critically endangered". In his habitat of Spain and in the bushland, he is hunted illegally. Continually growing cities and the expansion of agriculture and forestry are making his habitat smaller. Even increasing road traffic is presenting major problems for him. The lynx population is currently recovering thanks to strict measures for protecting biodiversity and the support of organisations like National Geographic.
