WILD FUTURES - Southern Hairy-Nosed Wombat

A short drive north of Adelaide, Brookfield Conservation Park is a haven for native wildlife and one of the last protected areas for the Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat (Lasiorhinus latifrons).   One of only two hairy-nosed womabat species, South Australia remains the last vestige for this remarkable burrowing marsupial.

However, wombats with their large warrens and foraging behaviour can inadvertently cause damage to crops, machinery and infrastructure in agricultural areas.  Threats from habitat destruction and fragmentation have resulted in a significant reduction in wombat numbers and distribution.  Brookfield Conservation Park was established to ensure that Southern Hairy-nosed Wombats are safe in their natural habitat.

Conservation Volunteers’ ongoing habitat enhancement and population monitoring work at Brookfield Conservation Park will provide a safe haven for Southern Hairy-nosed Wombats. By working together with local landholders, researchers and the Department of Environment & Natural Resources, Conservation Volunteers will help to ensure their ongoing survival.

Saving the Southern Hairy-nosed wombat is an important part of our commitment to the conservation of Australia's wildlife.  Our property at Brookfield Conservation Park was established to ensure that Southern Hairy-nosed Wombats are safe in their natural habitat.
