New evidence confirms that one of our most precious creatures, the bilby, is under increasing threat.

Recent surveys of the Great Sandy Desert in WA produced only a few sightings, a fact put down to the threat of feral animals, severe cyclones and possibly disease. That is why supporting the protection and expansion of the bilby populations now is important.

For a creature that once inhabited our vast land in the millions, this is a perilous position to be in. Join Frank Manthey, the Bilby Man, and swimming legend Dawn Fraser in the rescue effort by donating at www.savethebilbyfund.com
