In Australia there is a move to replace the Easter Bunny with the Easter Bilby. This increased marketing exposure will hopefully help save the species from Extintion. The Greater Bilby, often referred to as a rabbit eared bandicoot, is found in small scattered spots in the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory and in the Great Sandy Desert, Pilbara and Kimberley ares of Western Australia. The lesser Bilby, the other of the two kinds of Bilby is thought to be extinct as none have been seen since 1931.
