The girl caring for Australian wombats

Many of us live with dogs or cats. But how would you feel sharing your house with 20 wombats?

Well that's what Emily Small, from Goongerah in Australia, does.

Emily, and her mum, have opened their home up to 65 sick, injured and orphaned wombats over the past 15 years.

They care for the furry creatures until they are well enough to be released back into the wild.
