Benny – Recovering
Reason taken into care: Benny wombat came in at 171 grams from Martinsville, in the Hunter Valley. He had been in his dead mum’s pouch for three days before being found. Benny has proved to be a real little fighter, as he was very dehydrated and freezing cold. With the help of the NATF Wildlife Rescue he is stable and putting on weight rapidly as wombats should. Benny will be in care for at least 12 months before he moves on to his re-release site where he will stay for several months until he is around 18kgs before being released back into the wild.
Benny is progressing well – now up to 3.5Kg and seen left with a “friend” – Wilma!
