Australian Geographic Society’s March – April 2024 fundraiser.

It takes an army of scientists, ecologists and volunteers to keep our beautiful and iconic greater bilbies (Macrotis lagotis) safe from predators and doing what they do so well – breeding to increase their critically low numbers.

Please help us to help them by donating to our bilby fundraiser today. Your money will go towards the national conservation program run by Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC), which is already delivering encouraging results.

This fundraiser kicks off Australian Geographic Society’s rebranded public fundraising campaigns, Australia’s Most Endangered, created in line with our commitment to seek greater impact on nature’s most urgent concerns.

AWC will use the money to fund breeding programs aimed at improving genetic diversity, to build and maintain fenced sanctuaries and for feral-pest and fire-management strategies to restore the ecosystems that bilbies need for survival.

It’s an expensive business to bring a species back from the brink of extinction, and every dollar you give counts.

Please make a tax deductible donation today. Donate here.
