He was found thirsty, tired and close to death by sheep shearers working on nearby property.
But the rare white wombat was taken in by a wildlife volunteer in south Australia, and nursed back to health.
Now the Southern hairy-nosed wombat, who's called Polar, is on the mend.
Wildlife experts say they will now use Polar to help educate people about wombats, and in a couple of years he will be placed him in a breeding programme to produce more animals like him.
Southern hairy-nosed wombats can grow up to 100 cm (40 inches) and when fully developed they can weigh between 18 to 32 kg (40 to 68 pounds).
