In 2007 Starbucks came out with another Conservation International (conservation.org) collaboration. This time there were no bearistas (that I know of), but they had a Costa Rican Tree Frog, a Tropical Butterfly, and Capuchin Monkeys. There was also a small tumbler cup with monkeys on it. Ten percent of the sale of each item went to Conservation International.
These bearistas from 2005 were produced in conjunction with Conservation International (conservation.org). The frog is the 39th edition of the bearistas, and the cheetah is the 40th edition. One dollar from every bearista purchase was donated to Conservation International, and the production aimed at bringing awareness to ideas of conservation such as “conserv(ing) the Earth’s living natural heritage, our global biodiversity, and to demonstrate human societies are able to live harmoniously with nature” (from the bearista tag). These bearistas are also incredibly cute, and unique characters in the bearista family.
