Since 1993 firefighters from Australia’s Urban, Rural, Aviation, Armed Forces and Corporate fire-fighting services have been coming together to create the world’s most iconic calendar… and 2021 is all about the animals!
Australia (13 October 2020) – Just when we were all about to give up on the disaster that is 2020, the Aussie firefighters have come to save the year… well 2021 anyway.
From its humble beginnings, The Australian Firefighters Calendar was established in 1993 to support the Children’s Hospital Foundation, providing funds for research into childhood burns. Now in its 28th year, The Australian Firefighters Calendar has raised over $3.2 million for various charities.
Since 1993 firefighters from Australia’s Urban, Rural, Aviation, Armed Forces and Corporate fire-fighting services have been coming together to create the world’s most iconic calendar. After 3 rigorous weeks of photography, the final images are put together to create the annual calendar for fans across the globe.
And the 2021 version comes out in six possible options: Classic, Hero, Animal, Animal lovers, Cats and Dogs.
“2019 and early 2020 was a particularly devastating time, and the world grieved with Australia as we suffered through catastrophic bushfires, and an estimated loss of 1 billion animals from our diverse native wildlife,” The Australian Firefighters Calendar team explained.
“While the fires may have gone, the destroyed bushland has made it impossible for many of the displaced wildlife to return to their natural habitat.”
According to “Bored Panda”, these years, Animal Lovers Calendar will be more important than ever.
“While funds from last year’s 2020 calendar helped pay for new equipment and supplies for nearly 6 months, the 2021 edition should play a vital role in treating injured wildlife from the recent fires.”
