Help rabbit control by reporting local activity

In preparation for the release of RHDV1 K5, landholders and the community are being asked to help develop baseline information about rabbit numbers and to provide any evidence of disease-affected rabbits in their area. people can get involved in two ways:

  1. Record rabbit activity in your local area in August or September in RabbitScan, preferably after completing a walked or driven spotlight count of rabbit numbers.
  2. Report any evidence of rabbit disease in your local area, such as dead rabbits and rabbits with symptoms of RHD or Myxomatosis, and/or submit tissue samples if you can.

For more information, visit PestSmart or see Boosting rabbit biocontrol.
