Wombat Rescue Tasmania

Donation protected
The wombats of Tamania are in trouble. Sarcoptic mange is decimating populations in the West Tamar Region and is spreading statewide.  Wombat numbers in Narawntapu National Park have dropped to critical endangered levels.  

There is a dedicated group of community members in Kelso Tasmania who are not ignoring the problem.  We want to rescue Tasmania's wombats.  We are establishing a sanctuary in the heart of wombat habitat on the banks of the Tamar River.

We need your help to fund our efforts.  Our goal is to reach $500,000 in 2017 to fund:

Our dream is to buy 60 acres of land that has recently come up for sale in a naturally occurring wombat dense corner of the North East Coast of Tassie.  We are aiming very high but believe we have to, in order to protect this wonderful iconic animal! Our dream is to have a little corner of Tassie that is safe for the conservation of wombats, where they are free from cull permits, roads & highways & where they can be successfully treated & rehabilitated after suffering the Sarcoptic Mange infection!  

Wombat Rescue Tasmania also invests in prevention and treatment in the field by installing and maintaining hundreds of burrow flaps to keep wild wombats healthy. 

Please visit us at to follow our progress and meet our wombats!

The wombats of Tasmania say thank you!
