How to use RabbitScan in 2016

RabbitScan is a free resource for landholders, the community and pest controllers to record and map rabbit activity, warrens, rabbit damage, and control activities in their local area. Use data recorded in your region to help decide where to undertake rabbit control.

Get involved in the Release of RHDV K5

Time is running out for landholders and communities to nominate to be involved in the national release of RHDV K5 in early 2017.

Record sightings, warrens, damage and control

Use the RabbitScan website (and mobile App) to record rabbit activity, warrens, problems caused by rabbits, and control actions in your local area. Create a map of rabbit activity to guide control actions, and work with your neighbours.

Connect your community online

Create or join an online group to share your rabbit data with other people in your local area (e.g. local council or Landcare group). By joining a group, you can: (1) keep members informed about current problems; (2) work together, and (3) coordinate control in areas mapped by your group.

Develop a community mapping resource for your region

Do you need a web and app-based community mapping resource customised for your region, catchment, shire or local government area? Regional sites are now being developed to centralise all rabbit data across regions and generate rabbit activity reports. Contact Mr Peter West (Invasive Animals CRC) for more details via E-mail feralscan@feralscan.org.au.

Join a coordinated rabbit control program

Working with your neighbours (and local authorities) is the best way to reduce rabbit damage and maximise the long-term benefits of control. If you need advice on how to establish a rabbit control group, contact your local pest management authority, or the Invasive Animals CRC (E-mail jason.wishart@invasiveanimals.com).


Regional groups are using RabbitScan. 

Reducing rabbit impacts is best achieved when control is coordinated at local and regional scales. Catchment groups, Local Land Services (LLS) (NSW), and local councils are now connecting to RabbitScan. Use RabbitScan in your local area to help keep regional group(s) informed about rabbit problem areas.
