CQUniversity School of Medical and Applied Science - Wombat Ecology Internship
The intern’s duties will be an important component of a pilot baseline study to examine current feed preferences in captive wombats at the Rockhampton Zoo. This baseline project will be an important part of a larger project investigating the optimum diet, dietary preferences, and foraging strategies of captive Southern hairy –nosed wombats (Lasiorhinus latrifrons) being conducted at the Wombat Research Centre at the Rockhampton Zoo, with the potential for application to threatened wild populations of a closely related wombat species.
