  • Monday 14 July 2008

Don’t miss a visit from conservation campaigner Frank Manthey at the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve next weekend, together with a special Bilby guest.

Frank will discuss the plight of the Bilby, as well as the latest news from the ‘Save the Bilby’ fund.

The Bilby is one of the country’s most remarkable burrowing bandicoots. Once common throughout Australia, it is now listed as Vulnerable and is one of Queensland's 12 endangered mammals.
