South Western Queensland landholders hold the key to finding new habitat to save the critically endangered Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat from extinction.

There are only an estimated 315 Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombats left in the world. They all live in only two locations in Queensland, Epping Forest National Park, 400 kilometres south- west of Mackay and Richard Underwood Nature Refuge near St George.

The Wombat Foundation is supporting the Queensland Government's search for landholders or land managers who might have a new home for the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat.

Help secure a future for this critically endangered species!

Do you have property in the former range
of the Northern Hairy Nosed Wombat?

If you would like to know more, or if you think your property might be a suitable habitat (more than 200 ha of deep sandy soil) please contact the directors at The Wombat Foundation below.
