The 2019/2020 Australian bushfire season began in November and has continued to rage on into 2020. As of today, 29 people have been killed. An estimated 2,683 homes have been destroyed in the blazes. Around 18,626,000 hectares (46,000,000 acres) have been incinerated. Nearly one billion animals have died in the fires with some unique Australian species being driven to the brink of extinction.
If you’re looking for a way to support causes that will benefit Australia during this difficult time, consider King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. The Melbourne multi-genre group has always been conscious and vocal about climate change and environmental causes and now they have released three live albums with 100% of the proceeds going to support Wildlife Victoria. The mission of the organization is to protect animals through rescue, education, and advocacy.
The three live albums by the band are each listed for $10 AUS ($6.90 US). Each album is accompanied with the beautiful, unique art by band artist Jason Galea, and packed with over an hour of live music. Since January 10, the band has released Live in Paris ’19, Live in Adelaide ’19, as well as Live in Brussels ’19. Again, consider supporting Wildlife Victoria by buying one or more of these high quality live albums from King Gizzard. The albums can be bought on Bandcamp by following the links on this page.
