BILBIES BACK IN PILLIGA STATE FOREST

A native Aussie animal has made its return to the wild, for the first time in New South Wales in a century.

Thirty bilbies have  been released into the Pilliga forest into a specially fenced, predator-free area.

They’ll have 5,800 hectares of space to roam free.

It’s all part of the state government’s Saving Our Species project to see 13 regionally-extinct mammals return to the wild.
