Save the Bilby Challenge 2018
Create... Inspire... Act...
The Greater Bilby is one of Australia’s iconic native animals but it faces many threats that challenge its survival in outback Australia.
In our 2018 competition, we asked Australian school students of all ages to produce a film / animation, piece of creative writing or poster to inspire greater public support for saving these threatened marsupials through action, education and raising awareness.
The best entry in each age category wins a real live bilby visit to the entrant's school.
Winners announced on 7 September, Schools Bilby Day. Congratulations for your great creative work everyone!!
