Pipeline segments help wombats build new homes

ENDANGERED northern hairy-nosed wombats will be given a fighting chance to build safe habitats thanks to a donation from oil and gas industry contractor Saipem.

Saipem has donated 20 segments of 8m-long, 450mm diameter pipe, usually reserved for construction projects, to Moggill National Park in Brisbane.

The pipeline will help the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection establish new colonies.

Santos GLNG principal ecologist Joe Adair said the donation was made after the company heard the pipe segments would be ideal for wombat rehabilitation.

"We are really pleased to be helping our furry friends move to new homes," Mr Adair said.
