How to use RabbitScan in 2020

RabbitScan is a free resource for landholders, community groups and pest controllers, to record and map rabbit activity, warrens, damage, and control activities in their local area.
RabbitScan can also be used to record evidence of rabbit disease, such as RHDV. 


Watch this short video to learn how you can use RabbitScan to record information about rabbits in your local area.

What to record in RabbitScan

Use RabbitScan to record hot-spots of rabbit activity (such as rabbit warrens), problems caused by rabbits (such as soil erosion), and all your control efforts (such as warren destruction). You can then use this information to plan and manage rabbits to reduce the problems they cause.

Communities make the most the most of biological control

Over 700 landholders and community groups were involved in the national release of RHDV1 K5 in 2017. Landholders, school groups and community organisations sent in samples of dead rabbits, and conducted spotlight counts of rabbits to measure rabbit populations before and after the K5 release. 
 In your local area, if rabbit numbers have been reduced, take advantage of that by (1) Mapping all remaining rabbits hot-spots in RabbitScan, (2) Print a map from RabbitScan showing those hotspots, (3) Prepare to do follow-up control, and (4) Coordinate control with your neighbours.
For most people, Autumn is the best time to control rabbits - but you should make this assessment yourself. Controlling any remaining rabbits will prolong the benefits from rabbit biocontrol.

Have you found dead rabbits recently?


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.
   Register your community group
Create a closed online group within RabbitScan for your community to:
  1. Record rabbit problems together with your community
  2. Produce a Rabbit hot-spot map
  3. Work together to coordinate control for problem areas.
