How to get involved in the national RHDV monitoring program

Communities are getting prepared for RHDV1 K5

 
Over 600 landholders and community groups have registered to be involved in the national release of RHDV1 K5 in 2017. This is the first time in more than 20 years a new rabbit biocontrol will be released and the community will play a vital role in both monitoring and the release. Landholders, school groups and community organisations are already assisting with sending in samples of dead rabbits, and are conducting spotlight counts of rabbits to measure rabbit populations. To get involved or report evidence of rabbit disease in your local area, follow the links below. Alternatively, click here to receive updates from PestSmart

1. Report dead rabbits - click here

   

Have you found a dead rabbit? Reporting evidence of rabbit disease in your local area (and submitting a sample for laboratory analysis) can help us to document (and map) the spread of biocontrol agents or viruses in your region. This can then be used to help plan follow-up rabbit control in your local area to reduce rabbit populations as much as possible and get the most from the RHDV1 K5 release. If you find a dead rabbit you suspect has died from RHDV, please record the details here (and request a sample kit) and then freeze the dead rabbit until a sample kit arrives.
 
 
 

2. Record rabbit activity - click here

 
Recording rabbit activity using spotlight counts before and after the release of RHDV1 K5 can help you evaluate its effectiveness in your local area, and help you to decide what further control is needed to maximise the benefits of the RHDV1 K5 release. This information can also be printed on a map for planning follow-up control in your local area with your neighbours and local authorities. If you are part of the national monitoring program, please record your spotlight count data here

Other news

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.
To contact the Project Team, please email rabbitscan@feralscan.org.au.
