Schleich is raising funds to support Australian wildlife following the nation’s bushfire crisis

Schleich has joined the worldwide drive to raise funds for Australian wildlife with a donation for every one of five different Australian wild life animal figures bought from its online shop from September 2019, until the end of March this year.

Following the reports of the bushfire crisis and devastating effect it has had on Australian wildlife, Schleich has pledged to make a donation for each purchase of its Australian species figures, the Koala, Wombat, Kangaroo, Quokka and Crocodile.

The pledge will include all of those purchases made from the company’s official online shops in Germany, Austria, Spain, France, USA, and the UK.

The donation will be made directly to the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) which directly supports Australia with saving wild life and restoring its natural environment.

Paul Dearlove, Schleich UK’s trade marketing manager, commented: “Australia’s animals have long been part of our Schleich world and we are proud to be able to help in this small way.”
