Fyna Foods Australia Pty Ltd is pleased to be a sponsor of Save the Bilby Fund.

On Wednesday 6th March 2013 at Dreamworld, QLD, Tom Campbell (Executive Director) from Fyna Foods met with Frank Manthey (Co-Founder of Save the Bilby Fund), Al Mucci (Manager of Life Sciences, Dreamworld), and Larissa Waters (Senator) to present a $10,000 cheque to the Save the Bilby Fund. Tom was also grateful to have met all of those on the board of Save the Bilby Fund who contribute to this fund's success on a daily basis.

The valuable $10,000 donation will be put towards the purchase of 30 of the latest solar powered cameras to monitor the release of captive bred bilbies at Currawinya National Park, QLD. This information is critical for bilby scientist Peter McRae.

Fyna Foods look forward to a long-term relationship with the fund to help save these little precious bilbies from extinction.
