American gives $8m to wombat rescuers
A multi-million-dollar bequest from an American benefactor has shocked a volunteer wombat rescue program in South Australia.
The man visited Mannum in South Australia to see the work two years ago and has now given $8 million to the Wombat Awareness Organisation.
Founding director Brigitte Stevens has been astounded by the donation and plans to put the money towards buying land to develop a centre to care for wombats.
"There's nothing like that in South Australia and you know that'd be a big step forward for conservation in South Australia where we can then work on co-existence with other species of wildlife as well," she said.
