Now in its 28th year, the world’s most popular calendar is back for 2021. And after the year we’ve all had, the Australian Firefighters Calendar is certainly a sight for sore eyes.
The country experienced catastrophic fires in 2019 and early 2020, losing around 1 billion animals as their habitat was destroyed.
The new year offers a new opportunity. Six unique calendars have been produced including two new versions!
- The ‘Hero’ calendar honours the hard work of Australian firefighters throughout this crisis
- The ‘Animal Lovers’ calendar puts a diverse range of Australian Wildlife, adorable rescue and therapy animals and other iconic animal images in the spotlight.
But don’t worry, your favourites are still available…
“Our popular cat and dog calendars are returning, but with a bit of a twist,” says David Rogers – Director – Australian Firefighters Calendar.
“As Covid-19 restricted our access to many rescue animals, the Australian public were asked to bring their own rescued furry friends to the photoshoot to help create these calendars. Funds raised will allow us to help less fortunate animals find a new home through rescue organisations like Safe Haven Animal Rescue and All Breeds Canine Rescue.”

This year the popular Animal Lovers Calendar will be more important than ever
The 2021 Animal Lovers Calendar will play a vital role in treating injured wildlife from the recent fires.
Funds from last year’s 2020 calendar helped pay for new equipment and supplies as for nearly 6 months, Dr Michael Pyne and his team of vets and volunteers worked around the clock to save streams of koalas, wombats, kangaroos and birdlife.
This year the 2021 calendars will be donating to the native animal charities that are vital to supporting the fragile wildlife.
One of these is the Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, where Dr Stephen Van Mil and his team are building Australia’s first mobile Wildlife hospital, which will make it possible for the Mobile Hospital to be rushed to wherever the wildlife emergency is.
There are also a number of small, locally based wildlife organisations that the 2021 calendar sales will help support.
