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.

We are officially in February and that means, if you haven’t already done so, now is the ideal time to start implementing your rabbit management program.

During late summer and early autumn, low breeding numbers, combined with biological control and naturally harsh environmental conditions, can cause added stress on rabbit populations, making rabbit control more cost effective and sustainable at this time of year.
