Wombat Mange Treatment Program

Mange Treatment Program: Be a Wombat Warrior

Welcome to the WIRES Wombat Mange Treatment Program, where you can play a vital role in saving wombats from the devastating effects of mange. Mange is not just a disease; it's a threat to these iconic creatures, affecting 90% of local populations in NSW. Let's come together to make a difference and ensure a future where wombats thrive.

Understanding Mange: A Silent Threat to Wombats

Mange is a painful and often fatal disease plaguing wombats, causing itchy, thick skin, infections, and impairing their eyesight and hearing. Easily transferred through physical contact and burrow sharing, it results in fur loss, constant thirst, and hunger, and, if left untreated, leads to a slow and painful death.

Wombats are typically nocturnal; however, if they suffer from severe mange, they might be seen during the day due to impaired vision. Addressing this issue is paramount.
