DPIPWE ignoring decimation of wombats, says local advocate

As there are nearly 500 Australian species under threat of extinction, a Senate Inquiry is currently taking submissions to investigate this crisis.

However, John Harris from Wombat Warriors isn't surprised by these numbers.

John believes our Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE), is turning a blind eye to the state of our wombats, and the only people taking action are members of the public.

Listen as John joins Fairsy live in the Big Breakfast studio to discuss the concerning issue.
