Rabbits in the spotlight on ABC Landline

This weekend, ABC Landline will be featuring a story on wild rabbits in Australia, and the planned release of an additional strain of Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV, also known as calicivirus) called K5 which is scheduled for release in autumn 2017. Hear all about the RHD-Boost project to control rabbits, and how you can get involved.

Do you want to become a release site for the RHDV K5 virus release? Registrations are open for community groups and landholders to nominate local areas as an official site for the release of RHDV K5 (when it is available). Expressions of Interest can be received up until 31 May, so don't miss out - register NOW!  To register your interest, learn more about the release, or contact the project team, please visit the PestSmart Rabbit web-page http://www.pestsmart.org.au/get-involved-as-a-monitoring-site/ or contact Emma Sawyers (Rabbit Site Coordinator) at E-mail emma.sawyers@dpi.nsw.gov.au
