Happy Easter Bilby

Bilby Totem - art doll 
A Bilby is an Australian  nocturnal marsupial also  known as the rabbit eared bandicoot Its  long ]hairless ears are used to detect predators and prey.  Bilbies used to populate over 70% of Australia but now are extinct in three states, NSW, Victoria and South Australia and are endangered in Queensland. At Easter time, the Save the Bilby campaign comes to mind as many Australian children will receive chocolate bilbies instead of Easter bunnies ... The green tag on Australian chocolate bilbies indicates how many cents from the purchase is donated towards the fund to protect this endangered animal.
Buy Australian to support an endangered Australian.
