Dingoes, rabbits & diseases
Dingoes have been promoted as a means to suppress rabbits, but history tells a different story. It seems dingoes and diseases like RHDV can hold rabbit numbers in some circumstances, but dingoes alone cannot suppress rabbits well enough to prevent continuing ecological damage.
Insights about Covid-19 from rabbit bio-control
When RHDV first appeared in Australia it spread poorly amongst young rabbits with little affect on them. However a later variant, RHDV2 is recognised as spreading amongst young rabbits. When Covid-19 initially spread, it rarely affected children. Could it follow the same path as RHDV?
Rabbit-Free Australia events provide a great opportunity for networking and information sharing.
