The uncertain future of wombats and the dedication needed to ensure a positive outcome.

The Wombat Protection Society is a voluntary organisation which aims to protect wombats.

The Bare Nosed Wombat was once referred to as the “Common Wombat”. This name inferred they were in abundance which is now not the case.

Our wombats face the ongoing threat of mange, which is deadly if not treated.

They also face the threat of road trauma and dog attack as our population continues to grow impacting on their habitat.

It takes wildlife carers many months of dedicated work to rehabilitate and release these wombats back into the wild.

This short film is an insight into the work they do.
