Help map Wombats in your local area

WomSAT is a new resource for communities to record sightings of wombats across the country. Australia's unique wombats are in crisis - Their numbers are declining and your help is needed to protect them by recording where you see wombats and their burrows in your local area.

Recording wombat sightings is very easy!

Where is William?

Northern Hairy-nosed Wombats (NHNWs) are critically endangered and one of the rarest mammals in the world. The small community of Thallon, in outback Queensland, hopes to raise its profile and with The Wombat Foundation, that of NHNWs with a giant wombat sculpture called ‘William’. William is being made at Natureworks, in Brisbane, and will be travelling to Thallon on the 19th October. WomSAT will be following William Wombat’s route home, so that everyone can track his progress on his journey.
