There were two species of Bilbies at the time of European settlement. The Lesser Bilby is now considered extinct. The Greater Bilby on which our replica is modelled is endangered due to habitat loss and predation by foxes and feral cats.
Bilbies are noctural animals that eat vegetable matter in the form of seeds as well as insects such as beetles, spiders and termites. They do not need to drink water gaining all they need from their food.
Bilbies are related to the Bandicoot
The Save the Bilby fund is working to build up Bilby populations ensuring genetic diversity.
