Southern Hairy-Nosed Wombat
Husbandry Manual

by Donna Treby


The Southern Hairy-Nosed Husbandry Manual is by Donna Treby who lives in the Currumbin area in Queensland.

Donna, who is actively involved in the recovery project for the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombats, wrote this manual as part of her research into the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombats, using southerns as an analogue species for the day when the northerns are brought into captivity.

This is a great guide that covers many areas of handling wombats in captivity. Subjects include housing and feeding requirements, handling and transport, health requirements, behavoiur and more.
