The 2019/20 bushfires in Australia have made a huge impact, not only to the people whose lives have been directly affected but also on the world stage.

One particular story that caught the attention of the world was of a little koala called Lewis who was snatched from the flames by the brave Toni Doherty in Port Macquarie in NSW. Sadly, Lewis succumbed to his burns only 4 hours after the memorial was announced, leaving an even greater hole of devastation from the fires.

Expertly crafted in bronze, Lewis will sit wrapped in his bandages atop the stump of a burnt eucalyptus, the major food source for koalas.
