Landscape control – Rabbits

The strategy to achieve this outcome is based on:

  • Gaining regulatory approval for the release and monitoring of any new effective RHD Boost strains as part of a government-agreed integrated rabbit control implementation plan with the goal of reducing rabbit impacts for over two-thirds of Australia — 5.3 million km2 between 2015-2024.
  • Creating a comprehensive RHD resistance model and strategic knowledge to maintain RHD as an effective  biocontrol agent in Australia.
  • Undertaking strategic, efficient and effective implementation of new and existing rabbit control methods  through the Rabbit Decision Support System and National Rabbit Facilitator.
