We are extremely grateful for the continued support of our main sponsors.
We work in partnership to bring the bilby back from the brink of extinction. Dreamworld is the only Queensland non-government institution for approval to breed bilbies for release back into their natural environment of Queensland. Since obtaining approval from Queensland Government, Dreamworld has breed over 20 bilbies and released 11 back into the Currawinya National Park. Dreamworld opened a Semi-Nocturnal Bilby House to increase awareness about bilby conservation and the plight of this unique animal and has unique educational programs linked to Bilby conservation.
Dreamworld donations assist important conservation initiatives of the Save the Bilby Fund including assisting with Rangers at Currawinya National Park in south-west Queensland, the area used to release bilbies back into the wild as part of the Recovery Plan for the species. We have supported two documentaries released in recent times on Channel 10 and BBC which has included the Bilby Brothers and staff from Dreamworld involved in the captive breeding program.
Fyna Foods Australia Pty Ltd (Pink Lady chocolates)
On 6 March 2013, Tom Campbell (Executive Director) from Fyna Foods met with Frank Manthey, Al Mucci and other Save the Bilby Fund Board members and Larissa Waters (Greens Senator) to present a $10,000 cheque to Save the Bilby Fund.
FYNA foods have supported STBF each year since with a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of Pink Lady bilbies and other chocolates going to the fund.

This enables us to use our skills and resources to assist others in a positive and rewarding way and actively work to minimise waste.
EnviroPrint’s main goal is to enhance public awareness of environmental conservation, cultural harmony, and the important work of Australian charities. We assist worthy organisations through the use of our quality graphic design and print services. We use locally source recycled papers, or reclaimed potential waste paper to maximise resource utilisation and save trees.
