Please Donate to Save the Bilby Fund





WOW! Thank you for digging deep and shovelling out so much love for the bilbies!

Look how much our incredible community of bilby lovers helped raise on our Giving Day:

Initial Goal: [$150,000]

Bonus Goal: [$225,000]

Final Tally: ${{{bar.raised}}}


What an incredible result!


Saving the bilby is within reach. But we still have a way to go to ensure our bilby doesn’t go down the heartbreaking path to extinction. Hundreds of native Australian species have already been lost forever for our future generations.


Your dedicated support is helping make sure we don't lose the bilby too.


We are working with the entire bilby community towards our goal of having 10,000 bilbies across Australia, as an insurance population to last another hundred years (at least!).


But as the cost of living continues to increase, we’re struggling to cover our bilby saving costs.


You dug deep to shovel in your support, helping us to cover bilby saving costs like these:


Bilby feed – Keep food on the bilby’s plate! Believe it or not, the price of mealworms, kibble and seeds for bilbies has increased by 30% in the last year.

Insurance It may not be glamorous, but it is essential. Insurance costs are up 135% on last year.

Essential land management and protection from feral threats It’s extremely important to keep our predator exclusion fences strong so our bilbies are safe from harm.

Utility bills We need help just keeping the lights on for my dedicated team members monitoring and protecting bilbies at Currawinya.

Running costs for our vehicles We now have three cars instead of two! And all the running costs are going up! You name it… fuel prices, insurance, rego and maintenance costs are all soaring.


Every one of your kind gifts will go towards this vital work to save the bilby.


Thank you for standing up for our Aussie battlers!


About Save The Bilby Fund

Save the Bilby Fund is a national charity who has been fighting to save the bilby from the threat of extinction for more than 20 years.

We have grown to be the single largest contributor to the ASMP (Australian Species Management Plan) for the bilbies, having bred well over 60 young over the last few years. We now manage more than one third of the entire intensively managed captive population of bilbies to support the Greater Bilby Meta-population management plan and provide animals for re-introduction.


A very big THANK YOU to our partners
