Save the Bilby Fund

The Australian Bilby is an endangered species with only 600 Bilbys left.

In 1999 two Rangers from the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, Frank Manthey and Peter McRae started the Save the Bilby Fund.

Since 2001 the main charter of the fund has been to raise money for a fenced off area in the Currawinya National Park to safely house the remaining bilbys.

The Fund has also established a recovery plan which researches why bilby numbers are declining, education the public, breeding programs and reintroduction of bilbys into the wild.

In 2003 John recorded ‘The Easter Bilby Song’ and donated the recording to the Save the Bilby Fund for their fundraising purposes.
