Southern Hairy Nose Wombat

The Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat is Queensland’s most endangered marsupial with a population of approximately 200 known individuals. By studying the closely related Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat, AACE contributes to gathering fundamental biological knowledge to aid in developing advanced breeding technologies that can be used to establish self-sustaining captive populations of both species. In 2009 a captive...
