Australia is home to one of the world’s most endangered mammals

The Wombat Foundation – Saving the Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat

Help us build a future for wombats and show that it is possible to save the world’s critically endangered species

At one time, there were only 35 Northern Hairy-nosed Wombats left on the planet.

The Wombat Foundation is helping to save these beautiful and elusive wombats:
the largest herbivorous burrowing mammals in the world.

Thanks to the support of people like you, there are now 250 Northern Hairy-nosed Wombats.

But 250 is still an alarmingly small number.

With your help, we can achieve a future where the wombats’ populations grow to a point where they can live sustainably across their former range.
