After the tragic shooting of Cecil the Lion, organizations are rallying in the fight for animal conservation.

After Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer illegally killed the protected lion in Zimbabwe, Ty has created a Cecil the Lion Beanie Baby as an animal rights fundraiser! Company founder and chairman Ty Warner said:

"Hopefully, this special Beanie Baby will raise awareness for animal conservation and give comfort to all saddened by the loss of Cecil."

On Monday, the company said they would pledge all profits from its sales to WildCRU — the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit of University of Oxford "in memory of the beloved lion tragically killed."

no title

This is absolutely disgusting.

Police are looking for an American dentist who spent $50,000 to kill one of Zimbabwe's most famous lions!

Earlier this month, Cecil the lion was beheaded and skinned after Walter James Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, paid to shoot and kill the beloved creature with a bow and arrow.

Conservation groups were outraged after learning the 13-year-old animal was murdered on July 1 in Hwange National Park — partly because Cecil was lured out of the park and shot.

gross mold watch out

We totally get that wasting food in this world is a HUGE problem, and we like the idea of trying to use everything you can before it goes bad — but not if it puts your life in danger!

Luckily, it didn't chow down on some toddlers, because the 18-foot snake was found in time by a Florida water-quality maintenance crew!

They said they run across snakes from time to time, but this was enough to fill all their pants with snake-fear poop!

Here's what agency spokesperson Randy Smith said:

Prince William & Prince Charles On Their Way To Protect Animals! Royal Father & Son Make A Trip To Highlight Illegal Wildlife Trade!

Princes William and Charles wanna help stop the illegal wildlife trade!!

Prince William and his father Prince Charles are going to be pretty busy mid-February.

They're going to spend all their time between February 9th and 13th trying to help out animals by highlighting the illegal wildlife trade.

First, they'll head to the United for Wildlife Symposium at the Zoological Society London, then they'll head to a reception at the Natural History Museum. It's an event hosted by the U.K. government for the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade.

After that, they'll be attending the actual conference where the Duke of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales are really on top of their animal conservation game! They've got one hell of a busy week!

And a lot of it has to do with Princess Diana's legacy.

She instilled in them a love of animals, which Prince William plans to pass on to his son Prince George… in the form of a jungle-themed room!

So cute! Way to help the animals, you two!!
