Steiff National Geographic Vula Volcano Rabbit
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. The volcano rabbit is faced with a drastic deterioration in its habitat. This animal only lives in the proximity of two volcanoes in Mexico. That’s where he gets his unusual name from. Vula volcano rabbit was designed to create awareness for this cute creature. A symbol for a creature which is the victim of humans clearing its habitat by fire to produce grazing land. Vula volcano rabbit is 23 cm long and made of cuddly soft plush fabric. The typical grey/brown colouring and sitting position are perfectly reproduced by this endangered animal. Its face and head are coloured brown by using elaborate airbrush applications. The inner ears are in pink. Vula volcano rabbit makes a special gift for anyone who appreciates the beauty of this rare animal. The threat to the existence of this species may mean that this symbol will be all that is left. Seeing this little creature in a collection can promote awareness and stroking its soft fur may awaken the desire to protect this rare species.
