National Bilby Day

National Bilby Day, observed annually on the second Sunday of March, was officially declared an annual event in 2005. The Bilby is an adorable native marsupial that inhabits the Australian desert. It’s the only Australian animal with its own official day of celebration and it represents the many other endangered species that desperately need our help.

Bilby populations are essential for Australia’s biodiversity, because if you didn’t know, they’re labelled as a flagship species! This means that if they survive and their population numbers strengthen, so will many other threatened and endangered species around Australia.

For the Bilby lovers of Australia, there are so many different ways that you can get involved to do your part and ensure these little Australian icons are around for many generations to come. So wether you choose to organise a fundraising event in your local community, supporting Save The Bilby Fund by purchasing an item from their site store, hosting a fun Bilby themed party to raise awareness, or sharing this cause on your social media, you’re advocating for the longevity and wellbeing of the endangered Bilby population of Australia. Please visit their website for more information and ideas for how you can assist the native Bilby!
