Demonstration of Rabbit Control and Re-establishment in Arid Lands

This project will demonstrate economic, large-scale rabbit control by ripping of warrens. Subsequent monitoring of populations and the effect on vegetation and soil erosion will also be determined. The project will complement the submission forwarded under the Community Landcare State Agency Support Sub-Program Rabbit Control and Rehabilitation of Arid Lands. The issue of rabbit control in pastoral areas needs to be addressed by all local Landcare groups and specialist technical support to determine strategies is urgently required.
