2015/2016 Department of Economic Development, Job, Transport & Resources. Rabbit Action Grant $4000
For twenty two years our landcare network has run a Rabbit Buster Program.
Large amounts of government money have gone to farmers as subsidies for warren ripping and baiting programs. Records of where this work has been done are stored in many places, old computer files, hard copy reports, old invoices presented for payment and in our heads. We now have the opportunity to employ mapping and GPS specialists to design a program for us to record this data permanently on a “free to public” mapping platform with one layer for each year from 1994 to 2015 and the ability to be continually updated. This will become an important tool for storing rabbit population data and planning future target areas.
