It takes less than one rabbit per hectare to prevent the successful regeneration of many of our common native trees and shrubs. This means that many rabbit-infested patches of remnant native vegetation can't sustain themselves naturally and are therefore in slow decline - but unfortunately this often goes unnoticed.
- Rabbit Traps are available from our office. These are free to borrow for 4 weeks if they are returned on time, clean and in good order, otherwise a $50.00 fee will be charged.
We also have available copies of - Rabbits: A threat to conversation & natural resource management - Whether you are a land-owner who conserves some uncleared woodland on your farm or belong to a Landcare group managing vegetation along a road side, this quick assessment method will help you decide if rabbits are a problem and what action you need to take.
