The Wombat Foundation is a charitable organisation set up to support activities that aim to bring the Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat back from the brink of extinction.
The Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat is one of the world's most endangered species - it is more endangered that the Panda.
In the 1980s, there were as few as 35 wombats remaining on the planet
- all at Epping Forest National Park in central Queensland. A second population
was established at Richard Underwood Nature Refuge in southern Queensland
in 2009. At last count, in 2010, there were a total of 176 wombats across
the two sites. Since then, the population has continued to grow: in 2012,
the combined population at the two sites was estimated at 200 wombats.
You can help us save these mysterious creatures by getting involved, joining The Wombat Foundation or renewing your membership or donating to the foundation.
