Rabbits are Australia’s most costly vertebrate pest and are environmental vandals, impacting 156 threatened species in Australia. Rabbits show disregard for fences, and occur across all land tenures in Victoria. Collaboration is imperative – inaction is not an option.
The Victorian Rabbit Action Network would like to invite you to the Victorian Rabbit Conference: Connecting knowledge and know-how towards more effective community action on rabbits.
The conference will:
- bring together community, industry, government and scientific expertise
- promote where the gains are being made in rabbit management and the planning approaches that are proving to be useful
- promote what mapping systems are being used and how people can work together to make better use of these systems
- launch a new small grants scheme to support and promote community innovation and collaboration towards more effective action on rabbits
- support networking and learning through presentations, posters, a trade expo, and an interactive session where participants can share their knowledge and ideas
Spaces are limited!
