SLEEPY HOLLOWS WOMBAT SANCTUARY Posted on 15 Aug 09:44 , 0 comments

Sleepy Hollows Wombat Sanctuary.

Where wombats dominate and humans accommodate!

Sleepy Hollows is a self-funded wombat rescue sanctuary in New South Wales, Australia. They specialise in rehabilitating injured, orphaned, and pet wombats.

The ultimate goal is to release the wombats back into the wild - the bush where they belong!

The sanctuary was initially started to deal with injured wombats, but over the years the amount of "pet" wombats that end up requiring help has increased substantially. Pet wombats in particular take a lot of time and dedication to reverse the damage done by humans.

Their work includes relocating wombats, assisting local councils and farmers, educating children and people in general about wombats, encouraging co-existence in our ever-changing world.

Check out their website HERE for info about donating or volunteering.
