“The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?”
Conservation. Survival of a species. David Attenborough, naturalist extraordinaire, asks that we consider these. And so too does National Geographic. In 2009, they launched their Big Cats Initiative with the aim of halting the decline of big cat populations around the world. It’s a big job – bigger even, than these beautiful Big Cat Initiative plush toys.
These gorgeous big cats can become both a companion for children and a grand teaching tool in highlighting the plight of tigers, lions, cheetahs, and many other endangered members of the big cat family. Each cat includes a swing tag with information about the movement as well as the cat itself, while the life-like features and big, cuddly nature of these toys are sure to inspire the next generation of conservationists.
Big Cats Initiative Jumbo Lion Plush features:
- Made from soft cotton-polyester blend with polyester fill.
- Includes a swing tag with information about the initiative as well as each cat's diet and habitat.
- Proceeds from the sale of this plush will support the Big Cats Initiative and other National Geographic education and conservation programmes.
