The Endangered Wombats need YOUR help
This petition had 1,455 supporters
The northern hairy-nosed wombat is one of the largest land mammals in the world. They also the world's largest burrowing herbivore. Currently, there are only about 200 northern hairy-nosed wombats left, found at Epping Forest National Park and the Richard Underwood Nature Refuge.
The continued existence of the northern hairy-nosed wombat is threatened by everything from potential local catastrophes and loss of genetic diversity, to competition for food and droughts.
A few conservation efforts have been made, including the allocation of the wombats to a new location as well as further research/experiments since wombats are a notoriously difficult species for which to develop assisted breeding techniques in captive management. However, an enormous amount of effort still must be made in order for the wombat population to increase to a stable size.
By signing this petition you are showing your vital support and raising awareness in saving these incredibly adorable creatures.
