Episode 16 takes a trip through time as we recount the awe-inspiring conservation success story of the Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat. For conservation to be successful it requires a cross-disciplinary approach, drawing on the skills and abilities of society as a whole. This has been the strategy of Queensland's Department of Environment and Science which has worked closely with numerous partners to save this large marsupial from extinction. For over 50 years, the project has played out in central Queensland working hard to save the last population of this Critically Endangered animal. Dr Alan Horsup has been at the project's helm for 30 years and has played a pivotal role in its success. Join us as we learn from him about the trials and tribulations of quite literally bringing this species back from the brink.
