Bilby sculpture shines some light on the plight of Australian native animals and the recycling of materials.
A Bilby is a shy, nocturnal marsupial, unique to Australia. It has a grey and white silky coat, long,
sensitive ears, and a pink pointed nose. It has thick claws and strong forelimbs that enable it to dig
rapidly in desert soil. It is about the size of a cat, with the male growing up to half a meter in
length from tip to tail, and weighing around one to two and a half kilos. They normally live for about
ten years. The Bilby is endangered due to feral animals and environmental devastation.
