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. As the African lion is severely threatened with extinction, this lion represents a special warning symbol. This is why this wonderful specimen of his species was created. He is 13 cm tall and made of particularly fine mohair. He stands as a proud representative of his species with his typical blond mane. His nose and mouth are stitched in brown. His ears are made of felt. He also has whiskers. The face on his head and the tip of his tail are accented in brown using elaborate airbrush applications. A cord is sewn into his tail. His chin is in white. He makes an ideal gift for collectors or for people who have an awareness for endangered wildlife. This is why he comes in a special gift box. He will be particularly appreciated since he is made of fine select materials. This attractive lion is a charming representative of his species. A valuable symbol for the conservation of this endangered species.
