The Easter Bilby

Since 1991, Australian conservationists have promoted “The Easter Bilby” in protest of the damage feral European rabbits do to the environment and to spread awareness of the plight of the threatened bilby, a marsupial with rabbit-like ears. In honor of the effort, here are some pictures of bilbies.

What do you think? Would you have Easter Bilbies or Easter Bunnies?

Chocolate bilbies are available to purchase for the Easter holiday.
