What we've been up to
Please note that our newsletters will now be bi-monthly, but don't worry, they will still be full of interesting stories, fun facts, and the adventures of our team over the past two months
Horrific Flooding State Wide
With this persistant rain our volunteers have been working 24/7 to keep our wildlife safe from the dangers of flood water. Many of our compounds are flooded and local burrows are underwater, as well as damage from falling trees, road closures and mudslides in surrounding areas. We continue to work through the rain to ensure the welfare of the animals under our care.
The passing of a great man - Brendan Akhurst
We are saddened to say that thePresident of Wombatised, Brendan Akurst, has lost his courageous battle with cancer.
Brendan was a much loved friend and valued memeber of Wombatised. He always spoke for the animals and could lighten the mood with a much needed joke. He was also an extremely talented artist, often sharing his passion and career with us. He has created beautiful cartoons for our wildife in support of their conservation and preservation. We thank the celestial wombat for bringing him into our lives and miss him deeply.
OUR WILDIFE SEMINAR IS BACK!
Join us on SUNDAY MAY 1st at the Mittagong RSL for an educative and infromative day on all things wildlife. Speakers from across the area will share their knoweldge and experiences from years of caring, rescuing, and rehabilitating our native wildlife. As well as perspectives from community leaders and educators.
Wombatised held two sucessful stalls at the Colo Vale and Berrima Markets throughout December.
Our main goal was to engage with the local community and spread awareness about wildife in our community. We had a great day talking to people about the wildlife in their backyards and what to do if they came across an injured or deceased animal.
We also raised much needed funds for Womabised through the generosity of our local community.

The tale of Nici Lane
Nici Lane was found on a wet morning in Joadja at just 1.4kg. Her mother had just been hit by a car and unfortunately died, Nici however was alive but sustained severe injuries. Nici had a compound fracture to her femur from the impact of the accident, she was quickly wisked to Southern Highlands Veterinary Clinic. Her fracture was fixed with an internal pin by the lovely staff at Southern Highlands Vets. She is now on the mend and doing very well! We cannot give enough praise to the good samaritans who stopped to check the pouch and the wonderful hospital team who helped Nici, as well as local carers and residents for their generous donations towards her treatment
