To successfully control rabbits across a landscape, or at a regional scale, landowners need to work with their neighbours to coordinate their efforts.
To tackle the rabbit issue the City of Greater Geelong in collaboration with community, have drafted a Rabbit Control Plan. This plan outlines how the City will partner with landcare groups and communities to address landscape scale rabbit issues.
The plan is ready for community review and comments will be received until Tuesday 25 August 2020.
If you’d like to know more about the plan please contact Travis Turner 03 5272 5272.
