Australia's wombats dying out

A contagious parasite is threatening Australia’s wombat population.

    The wombat is one of Australia's most-loved native animals.

    Wildlife authorities say they're under threat from a painful, fatal disease, sarcoptic mange.

    The wombat population in one national park has declined by 94 percent in just six years.

    Al Jazeera's Drew Ambrose reports from Australia's southern state of Tasmania.
