How we help:
We will continue to support conservation of the Northern hairy-nosed wombat until the wombats are able to live sustainably across their historic range.
All of our research and recovery actions are geared towards this vision.
We fund vital research in the field, including trialling new methods to control the incursion of introduced buffel grass into wombat habitat and understanding the impacts of the buffel grass on the wombats’ diet, behaviour and social interactions.
We fund vital recovery actions, including supporting the triannual DNA analysis of wombat hairs that helps us build up a profile of individual wombats at Epping Forest National Park and to track population demographics essential for conservation.
We represent the views of the community on the Northern hairy-nosed wombat Recovery Team convened by the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. The team oversees the development and review of the Recovery Plan that guides the conservation management of the species.
