Australia now has a National Bilby Day. Beginning on Sunday 11 September 2005, National Bilby Day
will be celebrated on the second Sunday of every September. You
can see a photo of the launch here.
Important note: As of November 2004, The
Bilby Appreciation Society
is winding back activities. Unfortunately, due to lack of resources (mainly time) we will no longer be replying to
emails, recording member details etc. This web site will be left
as it contains useful Bilby
information for students etc., however, only minimal maintenance of the
site will be performed.
We would like to take this opportunity to thanks the 500 members who joined online during the 6 years we kept membership
records. Special thanks to the 100 groups and individuals
who joined us and made a donation to the Save the Bilby Fund
during the two and a half years we ran the Bilby Bonus Pack offer -
your total contribution to the fund was over $2300.
Finally, extra special thanks to the Save the Bilby Fund people, who do
such great work for Bilbies, and treated us so well when we visited
them in Charleville, and have provided much useful information since.
We also support the Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation
Centre in Western Australia and the Arid Recovery Project in
Bilby Appreciation Society supports the
