We need to have a conversation about wombats – The Oatmeal:

Go for the comic, stay for the message:

The Northern Hairy-nosed wombat is considered one of the rarest mammals in the world — there are only 80 of them left. If you can, please donate or follow any of these organizations. Upon publishing this comic, I personally donated $10,000 to help kick things off.

The Wombat Protection Society of Australia

Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary

Wombat Awareness Organisation

Cedar Creek Wombat Rescue Inc. & Hospital

If you’re unable to donate, please share this comic to help spread the word about these incredible marsupials with incredible buttocks.
