Variety Children’s Zoo amphitheatre at 1pm

Get up close to our beautiful bilbies, learn more about this amazing species and find out more about our conservation efforts working to save the species.

Adopt a Bilby

Listed as vulnerable to extinction, bilby populations have been devastated by predators like feral cats and foxes with less than 10,000 bilbies estimated to remain in the wild. Zoos SA is proud to have bred more than 200 bilbies with more than 90 released back into the wild as part of vital recovery projects. Help us keep working to ensure our long-eared marsupial friends have a very long future ahead and adopt a bilby today.
