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. This is Boogie, the grey gorilla from the National Geographic series. He is 35 cm tall and made from incredibly soft plush fabric. Boogie does just fine in a nursery. His real-life counterparts in the African rainforest are not doing so well. They are on the Red List of Threatened Species. This grand and powerful animal is at risk of extinction due to the destruction of its habitat and poaching by irresponsible trophy hunters. Boogie represents this wonderful species, which has strong protective instincts and a tremendous family bond. National Geographic Boogie gorilla stands on his own and has soft plush grey fur with beautiful shading that transitions from his body to his haunches. The middle of his head is brown. The intricate airbrush technique using black from head to foot complements this charming creature perfectly. He is an understanding playmate and cuddling partner for your child. He has a friendly face that will liven up your nursery and he loves to go on adventures.
