What can I do if I see a wombat that has been hit by a car?
- If it is safe to do so, pull over to check to see if the wombat is deceased and whether has a joey in the pouch.
- Pull the deceased wombat off the road by its front legs, and roll it over on its back to check whether it is male or female.
- It is a good idea to keep gloves in the car for handling the wombat, and a pillow case or warm soft beanie in case of an orphan.
- Call Bonorong Wildlife Rescue on 0447 264 625 for more immediate help if there is a joey, or the wombat is injured. If not trained, seek urgent assistance.
