Australian Bilby

We look at the intriguing marsupial

People often describe the bilby’s appearance as a mismatch of other animals, with its pointed snout, rabbit-like ears, long hind feet and bi-coloured tail, but these peculiarities make up one of Australia’s most-loved marsupials. The bilby has been immortalised as Australia’s bearer of Easter goodies, and can grow up to 55cm long, with a tail up to 29cm long. Throughout the large country, bilbies occupy burrows in mostly desert regions, although they once flourished in a variety of habitats, including tussock grassland regions, desert sandplains and semi-arid shrublands. Their love of burrowing makes them an important ecosystem engineer — many other species can reap the rewards of their skillfully made holes, including insects, reptiles, and small mammals.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our April issue. This month we’ve spent a lot of time discussing advocacy at Vegan Life HQ. The internet has undeniably had a huge impact on spreading the vegan message and our cover star, Monami Frost, is one person who uses her platform for good. She tells us why vegans don’t have to compromise and shares her top tips for advocating online. We were lucky enough to talk to Rich Hardy, now head of campaigns at Veganuary, who has spent 20 years working undercover to expose animal cruelty — putting himself in risky and potentially dangerous situations to share the stories of so many voiceless animals. It was great to catch up with Bob from ETHCS to see how the departure of Tim Shieff has changed things for the vegan brand. They’re so passionate about making ethical and vegan clothing easy and accessible to buy, and also have some exciting plans coming up. Tony Galuidi has written a thought provoking piece on how to approach advocacy — it sparked a big office debate, so we rolled the question out to our readers — should we be more supportive of those cutting down meat, but not cutting it out? Read what was said. Have a great month,
