Donations ensure every wombat that requires rescuing receives immediate support, assisted by our on-call veterinarian.

Wombats in the wild will often suffer from drought, fires, habitat loss and disease.

What positive impact do Wombats have on our ecosystem?

Wombats have an extremely important role in the efficiency of our ecosystem. Their burrows infiltrate water into the water table, provide vital habitat to other species of wildlife. In addition, they aerate the soil and germination rates of native grasses is 70% higher.
