Our work to save bilbies relies on it
Without help from the Australian public, we risk losing bilbies from the wild forever.
The bilby has disappeared from 80% of its former range. Introduced animals and habitat change have decimated their numbers and drastically reduced their distribution.
With the resources available to it, Save the Bilby Fund is doing everything in its power to help save this precious marsupial of the Australian outback. The Fund is responsible for co-ordinating the national Recovery Plan for the species. Without this type of informed management of the wild, captive and semi-captive populations, we risk bilbies becoming extinct.
Save the Bilby Fund relies on your support and we have no recurrent funding from any source, including the government.
The bilby’s future really is in your hands.
Help us fundraise
Make a bequest
The Fund has only been able to come this far since being the recipient of a bequest 5 years ago. We have been running on that and the smell of an oily rag!
We truly are grateful for that bequest, otherwise we would not be doing the important breeding work that we are doing now.
We know that leaving a bequest is a deeply personal and individual decision. However many bilby-lovers have asked us what they might do, should they wish to include us in their will, after their loved ones have been taken care of, naturally. So, if you would like to make sure that the bilbies live beyond your own lifetime for the future generations, here is some guidance.
N.B. At any time, please call Peggy Mucci, our wonderful co-ordinator if you would like to discuss anything with us.
