Bilbies over Bunnies this Easter
This Easter many Australian's are going to treat themselves to a few eggs, hot cross buns and maybe a bunny or two.
But have you ever stopped to think of why we as Australian's celebrate with chocolate bunny's when we have the perfect native alternate - the bilby.
In a conservation effort Help Save The Bibly Fund and Bush Heritage are raising awareness and putting chocolate bilbies on the shelf.
Ian Gunn a veterinarian from Monash University joined Sarah on the Regional Roundup to tell her more about the humble bilby.
