Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat

Project Successful! Completed Jul 2008

FAME funded strategies to expand the population of Northern Hairy-nosed Wombats in Queensland

2007-2008

FAME provided support for the Recovery Project of the critically endangered Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat. The Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat is the most endangered large mammal in the world, and Australia’s second most endangered mammal. This project increased the chances of survival of the species, and enabled the establishment of a second colony at the Richard Underwood Nature Reserve, which recorded two births in 2011.
