Cub Cubs is dedicated in helping endangered and threatened species whose populations have been seriously harmed by poaching and irresponsible human activities.
The Save the Critters series is donating a percentage of the proceeds to The International Anti-Poaching Foundation (http://www.iapf.org).
The animals represented here are only a few of the species we have long held dear in our critter-loving hearts:
African Elephant: Majestic, ancient and astoundingly intelligent, the African Elephant population is at the forefront of the fight against poaching and greed.
Amur Leopard: Native to Russia's far east and known for their stunning dappled coats, the critically endangered Amur Leopard's numbers have dwindled to only 60 cats in the entire world.
Black Rhino: Another African native, the Black Rhino population was nearly decimated by European game hunters by the mid-20th century. While their numbers are slowly recovering, we must be ever vigilant in the fight against illegal hunting of one of the oldest living mammal species.
Hawksbill Turtle: These spectacular reptiles help keep our coral reefs healthy by eating damaging species like sponges. Endangered by carelessly placed fishing nets and longlines, Hawksbill Turtles are also targets of poachers because of their gorgeously patterned shells.
