Bounce into the Zoo for National Bilby Day
Hop in to help celebrate the Adelaide Zoo’s gorgeous Australian native bilbies and receive a free Melba’s Chocolate Bilby on arrival. They are still operating under capacity restrictions so remember to book in advance.
There will be a Bilby keeper talk in the Variety Children’s Zoo amphitheatre at 1pm. Get up close to the beautiful bilbies, learn more about this amazing species and find out more about their conservation efforts working to save the species.
Adopt a Bilby
Listed as vulnerable to extinction, bilby populations have been devastated by predators like feral cats and foxes with less than 10,000 bilbies estimated to remain in the wild. Zoos SA is proud to have bred more than 200 bilbies with more than 90 released back into the wild as part of vital recovery projects. Help them to keep working to ensure our long-eared marsupial friends have a very long future ahead and adopt a bilby today. FIND OUT MORE HERE
