A toy firefighter holding a koala is due to be made to help out injured and displaced animals affected the Australian bushfires.

Toy manufacturer Funko and PopCultcha are behind the new figured, dubbed the ‘Bushfire Hero Firefighter’.

Funko has pledged that all profits will go to RSPCA National Bushfire Appeal..

The toy is described as ‘the firefighter holding the koala is intended to represent all of the emergency service workers and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to help rescue injured and displaced animals that have suffered as a result of the devastating bushfires.’

“The RSPCA are working alongside government and emergency agencies, veterinarians and local authorities to provide much-needed equipment and supplies, emergency care and identifying and assessing injured animals in need of assistance,” the company wrote.

“Their work will continue for months after the fires have ceased.”

The limited-edition item will be available in June 2020 at a cost of $19.99.
