Bilby

I'm a Bilby

Bilbies are shy, nocturnal creatures native to Australias desert regions. The Greater Bilby has a distinctive white-tipped tail, long and highly sensitive ears and a pointed snout. They are nocturnal animals and spend their nights digging burrows or searching for plant bulbs, seeds or insects to eat. Bilbies are a threatened species and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is part of a National Bilby breeding program in collaboration with Save the Bilby Foundation, this will help ensure that there is captive insurance population to help save these creatures from extinction.
