Adorable bilby joey born at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

A tiny Greater Bilby joey made her public debut at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on Wednesday.

The female joey was born at the sanctuary three months ago, is small enough to fit in one hand and has adorable big ears.

The new joey is the product of successful breeding between two of the Sanctuary’s resident bilbies, Shiny (mother) and Jundah (father). She takes the Sanctuary’s bilby family population count to seven in total.


The new addition is expected to remain at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary as part of it’s breeding program.

The greater bilby is an endangered species, with only an estimated 400 to 600 remaining in the wild in Queensland.
