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

Though the state government have announced a generous $100,000 worth of funding to fight the deadly disease, they are still issuing culling permits allowing people to kill the struggling species.

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.
