The purpose of the reintroduction project is to establish a second colony of northern hairy-nosed wombats. To do this, 15 northern hairy-nosed wombats were translocated from Epping Forest National Park (Scientific) to Richard Underwood Nature Refuge between July 2009 and September 2010.

You can read details of the reintroduction progress through the annual project summary pages below.
