    Wombats are naturally only found in Australia and Tasmania. However, they can be found in many zoos in the United States which are important in maintaining the conservation of the species.

    Generally, wombats live in wet, partly forested coastal areas, and along the ranges of the western slopes in Australia. The endangered southern hairy-nosed wombat prefers to inhabit in dry, open country. Wombats are native to Australia. Like non-native animals across the globe, wombats are held in captivity at zoos across the United States. In 2010, the Albuquerque BioPark Zoo in New Mexico acquired the only Tasmanian wombats in North America. Zoos in Memphis, Chicago and San Diego house the southern hairy-nosed wombats.
