National Bilby Day
National Bilby Day was officially launched in 2005 and the celebrations are held on the second Sunday of September.
The bilby is the only Australian animal with an official gazetted day of celebration!
This is because the bilby is so incredibly important as a flagship species – if they survive, so do many other threatened species and so they are the perfect critter to front biodiversity month in September.
Our bilby lovers find many ways to celebrate National Bilby Day.
