The Wombat program
Before the Wombat program was instigated by Manfred and Helen Heide  most baby  native animals handed in to Parks and wild life or the department of environmental  herratige  were euthenaised. Since begining the program in 1985 the amount of babies  bceing culled has dropped dramatically.  The program allows qualified people to rear  and maintain baby wombats that would normally be put to sleep. A positive attribute  of the program is that in some cases northern Hairy nosed Wombats who are now  considered the most endangered Australian species in the world ,are now being raised  by surrogate Southern Hairy Nosed Wombat mothers. Without the program I feel sure  the Northern Hairy nosed Wombat would become extinct. There is also an invetro  fertilization program which is endevouring to place Northern Hairy nosed wombats  into Southern hairy nosed Wombats in order to lift the ever decresing numbers of the  Northern hairy nosed Wombat..  It is believed that there are only 135  Northern  Hairy nosed Wombats left living in the wild.The department of Environmental heatige   will basically  only supply the milk for the baby marsupials up until the time they are  weened  From that time onwards we as members of the Wombat program pay all the  food and vet bills from our own pockets or from donations towards the animals  upkeep if we are lucky . There are no  Vetinary services  resident here in Ceduna. The  nearest being an  800 killometer round trip.if an animal has problems..  We pay for the  travel and the overnight stays out of our own pockets . Although we love and care for  the animals it is quite a strain on any normal  families budget, hence the donate  through paypal  signs on the site. Our food bill for the animals is over 800  $ a month  let alone vet bills and medication that we have to find the money for.  So please  donate as best you can towards the Wombats and otheranimals new enclosures. To  date the program  has helped  house and find homes  for hundreds  of animals in  breeding programs, zoos ,wild life parks and various universities in Australia and  other parts of the world
