Rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) have been nominated as among ‘100 of the world’s worst’ invaders (Global Invasive Species Database 2009), in recognition of their extensive damage to biodiversity and difficulty to eradicate. The Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre hosted an international workshop in February 2010 to share and progress knowledge and experience of rabbit eradications, particularly on islands. This report summarises the invited papers, main discussions and recommendations of the expert workshop. It also includes a stand-alone appendix on ‘Current agreed best practice on rabbit eradication on islands’.
