PUEBLO — A red panda in Pueblo is helping with the efforts to fight the devastating Australian wildfires.

Starting on Monday, the Pueblo Zoo will be selling red panda prints and the money from the art will go toward the Red Panda Network and the Australian wildfires.

"I feel very blessed that I am able to help in a way that actually makes a difference and that I can reach out to other people in the community or all over the world and let them know that there are ways we can help even if we are not in Australia, our money can go to help," said primary section keeper, Brittany Merlo.

If you would like your very own red panda artwork, you can buy them on the zoo's Give Australia page.
