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.
