Wombats: Vombatidae - Conservation Status

wild dogs

Development in Australia has reduced and fragmented wombat habitat. In addition, dogs, dingoes (wild dogs), and automobiles are the other main threats to wombats. The northern hairy-nosed wombat is Critically Endangered, facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. It lives in only one place, the Epping National Forest in Queensland, where it is off-limits to visitors. As few as 100 individuals may remain in the wild. The other two wombat species are not threatened.
