Charleville Bilby Experience houses the main captive breeding program, is the place to go to meet this little precious creature. Pete and Frank, more well known as the Bilby Brothers, are the pioneer at saving a small animal called bilby. The Queensland bilby population is the most threatened and genetically distinct population in Australia. It has declined in range during the past 10 years and is continuing to do so. Peter has been tracking this population since 1988 and alarmingly, noted its steady decline. He decided the only way to secure a population of bilbies from cats and foxes was to build a fenced enclosure and discussed this with Frank. Together they co-founded Save the Bilby Fund in 1999.
