Greater Bilby Recovery Summit 2015
The interim plan outlines a cohesive approach and call to action that speaks in a united voice for the bilbies.
The summit was a Save the Bilby Fund initiative. Thanks to all who particpated and our sponsors.
On March 10, 2015, 39 people from 29 organisations gathered in Queensland to forge a new plan for the recovery and conservation of the Greater Bilby. The workshop, facilitated by the IUCN SSC Conservation Breeding Specialist Group, was organised by the Save the Bilby Fund in partnership with the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, the Taronga Conservation Society Australia, Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation and the Australian Government Department of the Environment. This report presents the agreed outcomes of the workshop including: a vision for the future of the Greater Bilby in the Australian landscape; the current challenges to achieving this; a proposed way forward for overcoming these challenges; and priority activities for the coming months.
