At the Victorian Rabbit Action Network, we are committed to promoting community led action on rabbit management in Victoria and supporting people to work together for more effective and sustainable rabbit control.
What does VRAN do?
The primary aim of VRAN is to see feral rabbits gone from the Victorian landscape.
The way we do that is to provide the tools and networks to enable community, industry and government to implement best practice management in the control of feral rabbits.
VRAN run training and mentoring programs, deliver workshops on best-practice rabbit control, and support people and organisations to collaborate on rabbit action.
We also provide the occasional funding grants to support community learning, innovation and rabbit management.
Our ultimate goal is the long-term reduction in rabbits in Victoria so we can enhance and protect the natural environment and sustainable agriculture production and secure cultural heritage and community assets.
Are you struggling to manage rabbits on your property, in your community or workplace?
Detection dogs have long been used to locate drugs, explosives and other illegal materials for the purposes of quarantine and customs but are now also increasingly being used in wildlife or conservation settings, in Australia and overseas, to locate native and pest animals and plants.
A big part of our successful strategy at VRAN is the use of mentors.
We believe in investing in our community, so that they can deliver the best rabbit programs possible.
We are incredibly proud of the work our Community Action Grant recipients are doing across Victoria to raise awareness of rabbit issues, promote community led action and support best practice control methods.
