About us

The Wombat Protection Society of Australia Ltd. is a national not profit company which was formed to raise money to fund projects that provide wombats immediate protection from harm, enhance the quality of life for individuals, or groups of wombats and to fund projects which develop or protect suitable habitat and/or sanctuaries for wombats.  The Society also funds and supports research projects which meet these criteria.

The WPSA aims to bring together people involved in wombat conservation and protection, maintain a data base of up to date research and information about wombats, and serve as a conduit for further research.
