Autumn has finally reached us here in Beautiful Majors Creek with warm sun and chilly winds. Our thoughts are with those facing dangerous fires and we are worried about our furry and scaly friends up there in Southern Sydney especially.

Thankfully the upgrades to the wo...

 I was driving along Northangera Road when I saw a dark shape on the side of the road. I soon realised it was a baby wombat, so reversed to check if she was ok. I was pretty worried because cars tend to speed up that road and there have been quite a few wildlife fatali...

Steve and I recently migrated to Australia from the UK and after spending a few weeks in Cairns with our friends, and on the advice of many, we decided to travel around the country before choosing where to lay our roots.

As the trip was unexpected and a little ‘off the...

These furry little bundles are Sleepy, Snow White, and Cinderella. They were rescued separately as tiny joeys but have grown up together here at the wombat refuge. Currently all about a year old, they still have lots of growing to do but will be released into the wild...

Little wombats seem to get bigger by the day! Soon they will be ready to leave their pouches and explore the outside world. To prepare, we've been helping build a indoor enclosure room so they'll be able to test out their legs in the warmth and safety of the house....

We had the honour of being the second set of volunteers here at the wombat refuge. It was great fun, and we were able to help fix enclosures, feed and care for the current resident wombats, collect grass for the wombabies, cuddle the little joeys, and of course take lo...

It was great to have Tremaine call in for a visit. She was our first volunteer and set up most of our on line presence for us. We are grateful to her for her help and her ongoing commitment to our work here by being a sponsor!! Thanks Tremaine and Bon Voyage back to Bl...

As a study abroad student, I've been in Australia for a little while, in awe of the unique animals and environments. I wanted to do something more meaningful than 'touristing' around with my last week in the country; the Majors Creek Wombat Refuge was the answer. I've...

Unfortunately, as wildlife carers, we see a lot of death. We move dead animals off the road, check dead mothers for joeys, and even when we are able to rescue an animal, we cannot always save them.

Scarlet was a beautiful little wombat who came to MCWR from another care...

This has been a crazy week! Wombats are being killed on roads every day - we have rescued a new pinkie almost every night this week. Poor Les is exhausted from being up all day and night feeding babies.

 

Below is a picture of the newest addition to our wombat family. Sh...
