Wombat Information:
There are 3 species of wombat in Australia, the Northern Hairy-nosed wombat which is one of the rarest mammals in the world, the Southern Hairy-nosed wombat - Near Threatened and the Bare-nosed or Common Wombat, the common wombat name implies their numbers are good but in truth, they're also in decline.

How can you help wombats on the roads?
* Raise the awareness to drivers in wombat areas with signage

Wombats are nocturnal with fairly poor eyesight – they rely on smell to navigate and find food. They can't see our vehicles and the brightness of headlights can blind them. Drop your highbeam to give the wombats a chance to move off the road.

* With habitat being fragmented by roads and clearing of habitat, wombats need to cross the roads.

* The creation of roads and even water runoff (drains made in dirt) can actually give the wombat areas to make burrows in - a dangerous place to set up home!
* Slow down in wombat areas, slower speeds give us more time to see wombat and react to help it move safely off the road. 

* Wombats are more active at night but can be out during the day.

* Scan the road ahead and the sides of the roads for anything that may move in front of your vehicle. Wombats can run up to 40kms an hour - don't underestimate that little round boulder on legs. They can move!

Wombats live in a variety of habitats – forests, alpine mountains, heathlands, and coastal shrublands. The Bare-nosed Wombat prefers wetter forested areas, whereas the Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat lives in more arid regions.

* look for eyeshine - some animals have eyes that shine in the dark like reflectors when light hits them.
* Ask your passenger/s to help you look for wildlife - more eyes looking is better for everyone to safely get to their destinations. You can make a game of it too, who is the first one to spot the wildlife first? Who has the keen eyesight in your vehicle?
