Now that all fires burning in the Australian state of New South Wales have been declared contained for the first time this season, the time to start rebuilding and helping really starts. According to The Associated Press, it is recorded that the fires took at least 33 lives and destroyed more than 3,000 homes and burned more than 26 million acres.
It is estimated that more than 1 billion mammals, birds, and reptiles likely lost their lives in the blazes. Around 25,000 Koalas were feared dead on Kangaroo Island and approximately 8,000, a third of all the population in New South Wales, are believed to have perished. A wildlife ecologist at Deakin University said some ecosystems would be able to recover in a few years, others would take decades, and some more than a century.
When we heard of all the devastation and loss to this beautiful country, we wanted to do whatever we could to help. So, we reached out and enlisted the help of our Australian artist and friend, Florey. We wanted to take something we knew fans and collectors of his have enjoyed and decided to put a little twist on it for this special release. For the first time ever, we are re-releasing Florey's beloved and long sold-out Guardians of the Galaxy poster but now as a beautiful Holo Foil Variant with a portion of the proceeds going to Wildlife Victoria! We are so excited that we can create a fun poster and at the same time use it to help a really great cause.

Victorian Bushfire Appeal
We are aware of dozens of wildlife shelters and carers around the state that have been affected by the Victorian bushfires and extreme heat events.
Donations to our Victorian bushfire appeal will be distributed to wildlife shelters and carers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months.
