BILBIES not BUNNIES

Tell Coles and Woolworths: we want BILBIES not BUNNIES next Easter.

A unique Aussie tradition is under threat. Chocolate bilbies are disappearing. It’s becoming harder to find them in the shops because Australia’s two biggest supermarkets, Coles and Woolworths, don’t stock them. Will you sign our petition to say you want BILBIES not BUNNIES next Easter?

Why would Australians celebrate bunnies? They’ve done untold damage to our environment for the last 200 years.

Buying chocolate bilbies at Easter is an Aussie tradition that helps save a native species—we need to combine our voices and make our message heard.

You’re being robbed of the chance to buy, eat and enjoy a chocolate bilby next Easter by multi-nationals who don’t care about Aussie traditions or our unique wildlife.

It’s estimated that more than 2 billion dollars will be spent on chocolates next Easter. Wouldn’t you like some of that money to go towards work to save the bilby?

Sadly, Coles and Woolworths, our most prolific supermarkets, are not stocking chocolate bilbies—even the ones made by our main supporters, Pink Lady chocolates. Since we lost Cadbury, Australian families have had to hunt around to be able to choose BILBIES not BUNNIES. Sadly, chocolate Easter bilbies are disappearing and so are real bilbies. That’s why it’s absolutely crucial we raise funds to prevent these beautiful natives from becoming extinct.

Join your fellow Australians and call on Coles and Woolworths to put chocolate bilbies back on the supermarket shelves. Sign our petition to tell them you want BILBIES not BUNNIES next Easter.

Coles and Woolworths are Australia’s two biggest supermarkets. They are, by far, the leading players in the grocery sector, with more than two thirds of the market share in 2018.

If chocolate bilbies aren’t in the supermarkets where most people do their weekly shop, many Australians will never see them, and never be able to buy them. An Aussie tradition will die out and the bilby will be pushed ever closer to extinction.

As Australians, we’re proud of our country and our wildlife. Sadly, these last few months have reminded us how fragile our environment is. We have to protect our wildlife or face losing it.

Please make your voice heard today.

This isn’t the first time we’ve had to take on a big multi-national company on behalf of the bilby. Please help keep up the fight for this little Aussie battler.

  • In 2018, Cadbury stopped producing their chocolate bilby without warning. They also stopped supporting Save the Bilby Fund.
  • In 2019, 15,000 Australians signed a petition calling on Cadbury to start producing chocolate bilbies again. Cadbury is yet to respond.
  • Aussie family firm Pink Lady, by Fyna Foods, continues to make a chocolate bilby and every one that’s sold raises funds to help save the bilby.
  • Coles and Woolworths don’t stock Pink Lady’s chocolate bilby. Their shelves are full of bunnies, many made by Cadbury.
  • Cadbury, Coles and Woolworths are all turning their backs on the chocolate bilby because they believe Australians don’t want them. But what do they know? You can’t buy them if they’re not in the supermarket where you shop!
  • We need you to demand BILBIES not BUNNIES for next Easter.

Sign our petition and you’ll ensure Aussie children don’t grow up without chocolate bilbies. You’ll help save a tradition—and a native species. Thanks to you, we are hoping that next year Australians will be able to choose an Easter gift that puts our wildlife first and helps bring back a little Aussie battler from the brink of extinction.
