Ty Warner made an announcement in August that Ty Inc. would be releasing a lion Beanie Baby in honour of Cecil the lion, the famous Zimbabwean lion who was tragically killed.

Ty hoped to raise awareness for animal conservation by releasing a Beanie Baby named Cecil and donate all the profits to the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WILDCRU).

Ty Warner made a statement about the release of the Beanie Baby, saying “Hopefully, this special Beanie Baby will raise awareness for animal conservation and give comfort to all saddened by the loss of Cecil”.

According to a Ty spokeswoman, Cecil will be available in stores at the end of this month at the price of $5.99 with all profits going to WILDCRU, who were monitoring Cecil at the time, to help with ongoing conservation efforts and research into enabling humans and wildlife to co-exist together.
