Buried wombats survive

A FAMILY of wombats thought to have been intentionally buried alive at Port Hughes have survived thanks to the rescue efforts of the Wombat Awareness Organisation.

Rescuers including the organisation’s founder Brigitte Stevens dug holes in the hope the wombats would emerge from their burrows, which had been covered with dirt and compacted, earlier this month.

The organisation set up cameras, which have now captured footage of a wombat emerging from one of the burrows.
