Wombat Monitoring Freycinet


We have partnered with the University of Tasmania (UTAS), DPIPWE and the State Government to monitor wild wombat populations for the presence of sarcoptic mange because while we know that mange is a major problem for some wombat populations, there has been little consistent monitoring for mange prevalence across the State.

At each selected site, volunteers will carry out visual surveys (afternoon and night) to establish numbers of wombats and presence of mange; this will be done multiple times to gather reliable data.

This project will be undertaken around Freycinet / Coles Bay. Volunteers will monitor on a number of sites both public and private properties. With stellar views, clear water and great natural assets, what is not to love about this area? Volunteers will be camping in the National Park for this project.

Get in fast before you miss out on this terrific opportunity to contribute towards a citizen science program that helps to better understand Tassie wombats and their future.
