The effect of rabbit population control programmes on the impact of rabbit haemorrhagic disease in south-eastern Australia

1. The effect of rabbit population density on transmission of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is a critical aspect of disease ecology for rabbit control and rabbit conservation. We examined the interaction between rabbit control and spread of RHDV and a non-pathogenic calicivirus (bCV) in Australian wild rabbit populations, and reviewed existing recommendations for control […]

Assessment and prioritisation of risk for forty exotic animal species

This report documents work commissioned by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre to validate and refine risk assessment models used nationally in decisions to import and manage introduced vertebrate species. The intent of the project was to: increase predictive accuracy, scientific validation and adoption of risk assessment models for the import and keeping of exotic […]

Risk Assessment for Australia – European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus)

Models for assessing the risk that exotic vertebrates could establish in Australia have been developed for mammals, birds (Bomford 2003; Bomford 2006, 2008), reptiles and amphibians (Bomford 2006, 2008; Bomford et al. 2005). These Risk Assessment models have been further explored by DAFWA to confirm that they reasonably predict public safety, establishment and pest risks […]

Identification and partial characterisation of a new lagovirus in Australian wild rabbits

Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) is widely used in Australia to control feral rabbit populations. Before RHDV was released on the Australian continent in 1996, antibodies cross-reacting in RHDV specific ELISAs were found in Australian wild rabbits, leading to the hypothesis that a non-pathogenic calicivirus had been circulating in rabbit populations in Australia, potentially providing […]

Competition and land degradation by rabbits – Threat Abatement Plan

This threat abatement plan (TAP) establishes a national framework to guide and coordinate Australia?s response to the impacts of rabbits on biodiversity. It identifies the research, management and other actions needed to ensure the long-term maintenance of native species and ecological communities affected by competition and land degradation caused by rabbits. It replaces the threat […]

Rabbits: a threat to conservation and natural resource management

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 in slow decline – but unfortunately this often goes unnoticed. Whether you are a land-owner who conserves […]

Monitoring techniques for vertebrate pests – Rabbits

The purpose of this manual is to provide details of the techniques available for monitoring rabbits in australia. By providing a step-by-step description of each technique, it will be possible to standardise many monitoring programs and make valid comparisons of abundance and damage across the nation. This is becoming increasingly important for the states, territories […]

Snowy Mountains and Resorts Region Pest Management Strategy 2008-2011

The development of Regional Pest Management Strategies (RPMS) provides NPWS with a strategic approach to pest management across NSW. The Strategy developed for each region provides a tool to broadly identify pest distribution and their associated impacts across the park system. It details priorities for each Region, including actions listed in the PAS and TAPs […]

Dead rabbits

WARNING: Some viewers may find this image upsetting. NatureCall Wildlife Management Solutions carries out Vertebrate Pest Management and was employed by a sheep farmer in the highlands of western NSW for the control of feral rabbits. 1124 rabbits in total were removed in three nights, all except one being head shots for humane destruction. These […]

Prospects for the future: is there a role for virally vectored immunocontraception in vertebrate pest management?

Virally vectored immunocontraception (VVIC) has been studied and promoted as an alternative to lethal methods for vertebrate pest control in Australia and New Zealand. Virally vectored immunocontraception offers a potentially humane and species-specific control method with potential for a good benefit?cost outcome, but its applicability for broad-scale management remains unknown. We present case studies for […]
