Kids in aid of bilbies

In Australia's Queensland state, school children are fighting to save the bilbies. The bilby, a marsupial that lives in the rivers, is threatened by continuing hunts and attacks by cattle. Now, the students of Cliffton Hill Primary School in the town of Davenport Down have begun a letters campaign, writing to the Australian government officials and animal-rights groups to save the bilby. These groups have now joined hands with the enterprising children in their fight. Young students from Brisbane and Melbourne have also pitched in.
