2016 Rabbit Buster Roadshow

Are you a property owner or Landcare member working to manage rabbits? Wondering what to do next?

The North Central CMA is pleased to bring Dr Tarnya Cox (Invasive Animals CRC) back to the region to present the 2016 Rabbit Buster Roadshow.

Tarnya is leading the national scientific research campaign to reduce the devastating agricultural and environmental impact of rabbits. She will also discuss current research to find a new strain of Calicivirus and efforts to improve the biological control of rabbits.

In addition, Agriculture Victoria Invasive Animals Biosecurity manager John Matthews will also join the roadshow sharing years of practical rabbit management expertise

A local Landcare group or network will host each session and share their story on rabbit management. An abundance of information and rabbit-management resources will also be available for participants to take away from each session. RSVP now to hop on board this unique opportunity.

Information sessions will cover:

  • Invasive Animals CRC Boost project- RHDV (pathogenic calicivirus)
  • Integrated rabbit management
  • Landholder participation in the Boost project
