And still burrows are being destroyed and wombats are getting sick!

1 Comment

Marie and Ray Wynan checked on 25 burrows yesterday and “only” two were blocked by logs, branches and debris – two too many!!

They managed to locate and re-open both burrows.

A dump point was relocated to a new location without burrows.

Below is burrow 397 that has now been re-opened by the Wynans.

A live wombat at saved burrow 368 with early signs of mange due to the stress from having all his surroundings collapsed and destroyed.

And it’s not just wombats that are being affected by the logging activity.

  1. Logged areas retain less moisture for many decades afterwards, and, as wombat burrows require a moist wallow chamber, it will be interesting to see if this area will continue to be suitable for burrows.
