Where does bilby live ?
I live in the desertic zones in the North-West of Australia.
Which threats ?
Three species introduced in Australia by Europeans provoked my decline : foxes and cats hunt me, while rabbits forced men to put traps and poison everywhere I live.
Kiwiwho’s word to save the bilby
Since 2000, the several successful reintroductions brighten my future. I even became a symbol : In Australia, the Easter rabbit became an Easter bilby, and every year in september, the country celebrates the Bilby’s National day.
