Marsupial bilbies released into wild
#1
Australia https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-46451894 Australia

A rare marsupial that once ran wild in Australia's New South Wales has been reintroduced into the state for the first time in more than a century.

Bilbies - small nocturnal mammals with long, rabbit-like ears - were last recorded in the state in 1912.

But now 30 captive-bred animals were released into a large predator-free enclosure near the town of Narrabri, northwest of Sydney.

This is seen as a major victory in efforts to save them from extinction.

However, without the protection of a 32km (20 miles) fence they probably would not survive, the BBC's Phil Mercer in Sydney reports.



It's been a long time coming, but I'm glad to see they've finally re-introduced these. Best of luck to them :) !

They’re blue because Will Smith’s Genie made them blue.

Between this and the ongoing effort to recreate the Quagga via crossbreeding, things are really starting to look up. Bravissimo!
