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. Meet Hummi, the Humboldt penguin from our new National Geographic series of endangered species. Hummi and his fellow Humboldt penguins live amongst others on the Pacific coast of Peru and Northern Chile and are unfortunately listed as an endangered species. Humboldt penguins are classified as "endangered." Humboldt penguins belong to the branded penguin classification. It is estimated that only 32,000 fully grown Humboldt penguins remain on the Pacific coast. Hummi is 35 cm tall with soft and cuddly fabric and airbrushing on his feet that give him a lifelike appearance. Tell your child about Hummi, and learn together with him about protecting endangered species – not only in zoos, but especially in their natural habitats. Hummi and his friends in South America will thank you and your family!
