Have you seen a wombat?

There have been a few reported sighting of wombats in places where they haven’t been seen for many years. Sightings may be recorded  on the Atlas of Living Australia.

WomSAT is a new resource for communities to record sightings of wombats across the country. Australia’s unique wombats are in crisis and their numbers are declining and your help is needed to protect them by recording where you see wombats and their burrows in your local area  click on the link.   The aim of the project is also to track the incidence of sarcoptic mange which is impacting on wombats where thick scabs form on their skin and hinder sight and movement, leading to starvation and eventual death.
