Baby Wombat

Baby Wombat

The Bonarong Nature Reserve near Hobart, Tasmania, rescues baby wombats whose mothers are injured or killed by motorists. Since the wombats are marsupials, the rescued infants are swaddled in blankets, and cared for by volunteers until they can move around on their own. This photo won Third Place in the March 2016 Journalism competition of the Alameda Photographic Society.
