Together, we can make a difference.

The extinction of any native species wounds us but in more than a quarter of a century, together we have healed many wounds. To enable us to proceed with our critical work in ensuring the future survival of Australia’s most endangered species and continue our work in bushfire affected areas, your help is urgently needed.

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.
