HOW DID WE BEGIN?
Wombat Rescue Tasmania (WRT) was formed originally by community members in Kelso and Greens Beach in 2016 in response to the horror of seeing mange ravage their once healthy wombat population.
Locals talk of the days, only a few years back, when it was a common sight to see 30 wombats in one paddock. Local Tasmanians, who loved to spend their holidays camping by the foreshore, have reminisced that you had to be careful not to trip over wombats on the way to the caravan park amenities block in the night. Sadly this is no longer the case due to mange, road deaths and lack of habitat.
