2023 Calendars!

Back by popular demand for our tenth smash year – with a twist!

I’ll be offering two choices this year: one for the bird lovers among you, and one with an assortment of animals. However, the assorted photo calendar will be significantly different from past versions: this year, three of the months will have a “set” of photos instead of the full-page solo shot; and (also true for the bird calendar) none of the photos will be of a Toronto Zoo animal. 

Presenting the 2023 Wall Calendars (8.5 x 11 in. folded, opening to 17 x 11 in.) as created by The Grumpy Penguin. The “themes” this year: Animals Are Everything, and Birds of Canada.

In the bird calendar, all of the animals were photographed in the wild over the past year. For the other, some of the shots are from the various zoos and sanctuaries I visited in Manitoba, Alberta, and BC, while others were taken in or near the Toronto area.

Some good news: The cost this year per calendar has been frozen at $29.99 (which includes shipping and handling – or delivery if you prefer and are within a reasonable distance from my home). There will be no possibility of delivering them to you at the zoo, but you are welcome to stop by here on your way to or from that location (we live four minutes from the gates).

My preferred method of payment for orders in Canada would be via E-transfer (use the address steve.a.craig@gmail.com to send me money). Please email me: Steve@GrumpyPenguin.ca and let me know how many you wish to order if you are using this method. Alternatively, you may choose to place your order on this page via PayPal; please use the first button below. If neither of these options will work for you, please reach out and we’ll work out an alternative.

For all American orders, please use the second button to pay through PayPal; your cost will be $27USD which includes shipping and handling. As above, should you wish to pay by e-Transfer instead, please use either steve.a.craig@gmail.com or 647-472-5566 as the information for the transfer.

(There are no additional taxes or handling charges to pay at checkout; also you do not need to have a PayPal account to checkout; you can pay via a Credit Card through the same link.)

I have not included animal names or species this year; however, if there are any you wish to discover, please drop me a line!

If you follow me on social media, you will know that I have been devoting quite a lot of my time recently to wildlife and domestic animal rescues as a volunteer driver. A large portion of any profits generated by sales of these calendars will go into my gas fund for these trips, as the longer ones can cost close to $50.

As always: thank you all so much for your seemingly boundless support. It always means the world to me!
