Bam is a small pink and white bilby. His real name is Bim Bam Bong but no one knows why. His friends thinks that is a silly name, so they just call him Bam. Early one morning, as he is snuffling around looking for food, Sinbad the wild cat jumps out from behind a tree stump. Find out how Bam and his animal friends trick the wild cat and make him run away from their home.
A beautifully illustrated, educational children’s book about our Australian wildlife and the importance of environmental protection.
SUPPORTED BY THE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE CONSERVANCY
Did you know that Australia used to have two types of bilbies: the Greater Bilby and the Lesser Bilby?
Sadly, the Lesser Bilby that once inhabited the driest deserts of central Australia became extinct in the 1950s. In fact, over 20 native Australian mammals have become extinct in the last 200 years because of predation by feral cats and foxes, competition with rabbits, sheep and goats and loss of habitat. Although the Greater Bilby continues to survive, its future is precarious and it is now nationally endangered.
