Guest Speaker: Tim Bloomfield, Rabbit Control Expert.
Rabbits have been significant pests in Australia since they were released near Geelong, Victoria in 1860. Rabbits are one of Australia's most serious pest animals and typically:
- destroy pasture, crops and plant communities impacting on agriculture and the environment;
- cause soil erosion and associated sedimentation of waterways;
- compete with native fauna for food and habitat; and
- are well suited to Australian conditions and breed prolifically.
- In the urban environment rabbits cause damage to property by tunneling and harboring under homes and structures.
- Under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994 land owners have a responsibility to take all reasonable steps to prevent the spread of, and as far as possible eradicate, established pest animals from their land
Corinella has a very active rabbit population.
This information session will give both urban and rural landowners the opportunity to hear about the latest rabbit management practices and techniques being used.
