Endangered wombat numbers rising in Qld
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The population of one of the world's most endangered species - Queensland's northern hairy nose wombat - is rising - with its largest increase in more than two decades.

The shy, nocturnal mammal is more endangered than the Sumatran tiger and the giant panda.

But in the past two years, numbers have jumped from 115 to 138, under state government program to save them from extinction.
