Since my senior days at high school not a day goes by when I don’t think about bilbies.
I wanted to share such thoughts even back in my day. So much that my last words in the high school profile were suppose to read, ‘save the bilbies’ – though it’s a long story behind why it ended up reading, ‘avoid sleepy dave’.
Nevertheless, since then I continually share my love for bilbies at every chance I have and today presented one of those glorious inspiring moments.
Despite the brief amount of time I had with the sustainability club at Benowa High School, I danced my passion for bilbies and now beaches for 20minutes. Eager grade 10s, 11s and 12s sat before me, taking in every word to enable them to act on their sustainability quest.
It was empowering.
So, in the coming months we are going to organise a Save the Bilby Free Dress Day and attend the upcoming BeachCare Party!
Bilbies and beaches, you’ve done it again. Happy National Science Week! So glad I took the bilby man’s advice!
