This Easter holidays hop into Dreamworld for the rare chance to see not one but three rare bilby joey’s now out of mums pouch and exploring their natural enclosure.
Born to mum bilby Jessica, named after solo sailor Jessica Watson OAM, the adorable bilby triplets are all boys and will become great ambassadors for their species and the Save the Bilby Fund. Dreamworld Life Sciences General Manager, Al Mucci says the un-named joey’s play a vital role in the survival of their species.
“There are estimated to be as few as 600 bilbies remaining in the wild making the Queensland bilby one of Australia’s most endangered animals, so it is critical that we are doing everything we can to raise awareness for these marsupials.”
“In support of the Save the Bilby Fund we will raise these little ones with the hope that they can be released in the Currawinya National Park, a protected bilby area in western Queensland,” said Mr Mucci.
Dreamworld is home to the world’s largest captive bilby population and has bred and released nine bilbies into the Currawinya National Park.
Show your support for the bilby by making a donation to the Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation, Save the Bilby Fund or by buying a Pink Lady Chocolate Bilby this Easter.
