Australia | Absent from NSW for over a century, bilbies reintroduced to Sturt NP

More than 100 years after being declared extinct in the state, 10 of the strongest and healthiest Australian bilbies from Dubbo's Western Plains Zoo have been released into a protected area of the Sturt National Park in the most north-western corner of New South Wales.


For Dubbo-based senior zookeeper Steve Kleinig a long career in conservation has brought many golden moments, but releasing the bilby is one of the best.
