Again @Kingtuttifruiti will be flying everyone to Australia





So put your Aussie akubras and sunhats back on and let us pawty!  This #NipClub Tour Downunder is going to be a wee bit different to that experienced back on February 18, 2012.  Firstly, we have scheduled it earlier so that our anipal furiends in the UK & Europe can join in.
Tour Time:
Thu April 5, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm EDT (USA & Canada Eastern Daylight Time)
Thu April 5, 10:00 pm to Midnight BST (British Summer Time)
Thu April 5, 11:00 pm to Fri April 6, 1:00 am CEST (Central European Summer Time)
Fri April 6, 7:00 am to 9:00 am AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
Tour:
Your Australian Tour Guides are going to introduce you to a wide variety of birds, reptiles, mammals, spiders, marsupials and even monotremes.  We hope you find it a fun learning experience.  They will also teach you a little more about the endangered Bilby.

Quiz:
After every 3 or so pictures shown by your Tour Guides, you will be given the opportunity to win one of 8 x Easter Chocolate Bilbys donated by our wonderful Aussie furiends ... drools!  In Australia, as part of an attempt to increase awareness of the Bilbys plight and to "Australianise" Easter the ever so cute long eared Bilby is the new native Australian icon for Easter to the chagrin of the bunny rabbit.
The #NipClub's brilliant QuizMistress @HollieCatRocks will test your concentration with fun Quiz questions.  Please ensure you are following @HollieCatRocks so that you can "direct message" (DM) your answer.  For those who arrive late we will ensure a few Chocolate Bilbys will be available for a Quiz to be held during the #NipClub pawty at a genuine Aussie Pub.
Munchies & Music:
The #NipClub's famous Barktenders will keep supplied with delicious Aussie munchies & drinks (see below) and our incredible DJ's will again rock our socks off with the famous and not so famous music of Australia.
Saving the Greater Bilby



It is thought that the Lesser Bilby is extinct so now we have to work hard to save the Greater Bilby. There are only 500 - 700 of the Greater Bilby's left in the wild!

In order to try and save the Bilby from extinction, there have been a number of efforts to create predator-free reserves in Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and even New South Wales, with varying degrees of success. Importantly, very interesting work is being carried out by local Aboriginal communities in the Outback, close to the areas where the Bilby still exists in its traditional habitat and natural environment. For these communities, the Bilby is not only a lovely animal, but a very important part of their culture and spiritual beliefs (The Dreaming), literally going back tens of thousands of years. Therefore, for Aboriginal Australians, who did not introduce the feral animals now threatening the Bilby’s survival, the loss of the Bilby would be very deeply felt. Local Aboriginal communities are working alongside Land Council members and scientists to survey and monitor Bilby populations, using traditional tracking skills and expert knowledge of the country. Special methods are being developed to reduce the numbers of predators preying on the Bilby, including feral-proof fencing.



The Bilby is the Easter Bunny of Australia
