FROM AUSTRALIA: A charming award winning film from Australia about their endangered rabbit-eared marsupial called the bilby, and the ‘sweet’ idea devised by a ranger and a biologist to help raise money for a bilby sanctuary, and have single handedly turned the tables on an almost extinct species. Their ‘sweet idea’ got the whole country involved. Now chocolate Easter Bilbies outsell Easter Bunnies by 8-1! Darrell Lea contributes a percentage of sales to the Bilby Fund, and the sanctuary has been built thanks to the chocolate eating Australian public.

Bilby Brothers is the story of an extraordinary fight to build a fence that will enclose 25 square kilometres of one of Queenslands most remote and beautiful National Parks – Currawinya, and hopefully, save the fast-vanishing bilby from extinction.
