Orphaned wombat plays at carer’s home in Australia

A video shared on social media showed the eight-month-old, bare-nosed wombat frolicking in a room with Sharon Woodward, a volunteer with ACT Wildlife, a nonprofit nonprofit that volunteers to support native wildlife in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) takes care. .

Sylvie’s mother was hit by a car and rescued from her mother’s bag, Woodward told Reuters in an email.

She was taken to a specialist caregiver with the ACT wildlife and fed around the clock.

“Wombats are full of life and personality. This video shows how lively and energetic they are,” Woodward told Reuters in an email.

Sylvie will stay with Woodward for about 12 more months before she can be released back into the wild, the volunteer caretaker said.

“During her time with me, she will move to an outdoor enclosure and practice a lot, digging a burrow, eating grass and just being a wombat,” added Woodward.
