As you may or may not know, bunnies in Australia are feral. They were introduced for hunting purposes....sport and food. Well, they took over the continent causing major damage to the environment: eating the grass and plants needed by domestic and native animals as well. There was also loss of plant species which led to erosion.
As a result some native animals became extinct or endangered, including this little fellow.......
Well, the Bilby is fighting back! At Easter, if you buy chocolate bilbies, a donation is made by the chocolate makers to help save the bilbies.
So we're doing our part--even though we can't eat the chocolate.

BUT we'll be hoping the EASTER BILBY visits us with some eggs......and other treats.....and maybe bones.....or lamb shanks...
We hope you have a very Happy Easter (if you celebrate it) or a Happy Weekend.
