The Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat is considered to be critically endangered. In 2010 the census counted 163 Wombats up from 30 in 1982. Declines in species numbers is primarily due to competition for pasture from livestock especially during droughts. Wombats never venture far from their burrows to feed so when overgrazing removes all pasture from around burrows they starve.
