Meet cute critters to help save the species
NATIONAL Bilby Day is held annually on the second Sunday in September to draw attention to the plight of the endangered animal.
Charleville marked the occasion at the weekend by holding the Fur Ball on Saturday and a special morning tea on Sunday.
The day raises awareness for the endangered species and helps raise money for the Save the Bilby Fund.
Although the national celebration is for one day only, the conservation efforts and experiences run all year round.
A popular tourist attraction in town, the Charleville Bilby Experience is open seven days a week from 9am–4pm from April to October.
By visiting the centre and booking into one of the experiences you are helping to save the bilbies as all proceeds from the tours and souvenirs go directly to the conservation effort.
