Bilbies reintroduced into SW NSW

Thirty Bilbies from a breeding colony on Thistle Island (South Australia) have been released in a 9,570 Ha predator-proof enclosure in NSW.

The feral-free reserve was established by the Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) and the NSW government, in the Mallee Cliffs National Park.

The collaborative work is a great example of landscape restoration once feral animals, like invasive rabbits, are removed.
