What RabbitScan provides

RabbitScan is a free resource for landholders, Landcare groups, community groups, local Councils, professional pest controllers and biosecurity groups. Anyone can use RabbitScan to record rabbit activity, impacts or control activities. It has been designed by landholders for communities, and it is very easy to use. You can use RabbitScan to develop a detailed map of rabbit problem areas, keep your neighbours and local biosecurity authorities informed about rabbit activity, or to view and record evidence of rabbit disease in your local area, such as RHDV. Information you record can be used to guide local rabbit management programs.

What to record

  • Rabbit activity (such as sightings, warrens, dung, scratchings).
  • Damage, such as soil erosion.
  • Control activities (such as warren ripping, fumigation, baiting, trapping)
  • Disease in rabbit populations (such as RHDV)

Benefits of using RabbitScan

  1. Develop a property or local area map of rabbit activity to guide control efforts
  2. Work together with your neighbours to undertake coordinated control
  3. Notify your local community or landholder group about rabbit activity and disease presence
  4. Send alerts to nominated people, such as neighbours or biosecurity authorities

Have you found a dead rabbit recently?

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 your biocontrol program. If you find a dead rabbit you suspect has died from a virus, please record the details here (and request a sample kit). Follow the sampling procedure below, then freeze the tissue sample until your kit arrives. Further information is available in the attachments below.

Resources for rabbit management

A number of control techniques are available for rabbit management, and there are many practical resources to help you decide which techniques to use, including glove-box guides, videos and practical manuals. The suitability of control options will often depend on your circumstances, location and time of year.
