The RSPCA has been been hit by a spate of orphaned baby wombats and other native wildlife.
- “RSPCA ACT has been overwhelmed with injured and orphaned native animals during the hotter months of the year. Used to caring for wombats on an individual basis from time to time, RSPCA ACT wildlife staff are currently caring for four of these appealing native creatures.
RSPCA ACT will need to provide hands on care for these four wombats for at least 18 months, a challenge for staff but also a huge burden on already limited facilities.
They’d like you to know that it’s an extra demand on their strained resources. Also try not to mow down as much wildlife with your cars.
They’ve kindly provided us with this picture to show just how cute a baby wombat can be.
I’m guessing this is your cue to provide money or help.
