Help us save the bilby
Save the Bilby Fund was co-founded by conservationists Frank Manthey and Peter McRae to raise money to help stop the steady decline of the wild bilby population.

Bilbies were common in many different habitats throughout Australia until European settlement. Predation by European Red Foxes and Feral Cats has meant that bilby populations now only occur in the isolated arid and semi-arid areas of Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. Please help Frank and Peter ensure that the bilby population is secured.
