Tasmania’s wombat population is fighting to survive, with sarcoptic mange decimating the species at an alarming rate.

Confused by the government’s contradictory actions, Fairsy catches up with Minister for Primary Industries, Jeremy Rockliff to find out why exactly these permits are still being issued.
