The Eurobodalla Shire’s Environment Team are commended for their efforts to reduce the numbers of rabbits across the Shire. Rabbit warrens have been destroyed and fumigated in Tuross, Long Beach and South Durras.
The new Korean strain of Calcivirus (RHDV-K5) was released across nearly every part of the Shire. Post release monitoring has shown an excellent uptake, with a rapid decline in rabbit numbers.
Follow-up work to the virus release and the fumigation has been in progress, with nocturnal low caliber shooting by an expert being the primary method of control.
