Guest speakers include Darling Downs Moreton Rabbit Board’s Dr David Berman, Biosecurity Queensland’s Dr Peter Elsworth, Southern Downs Regional Council’s Craig Magnussen and QMDC’s Vanessa Macdonald.

The workshop will cover: getting into the mind of a rabbit, how to identify where rabbits are breeding, control techniques, a warren ripping demonstration, incentives offered, and legal obligations for landholders.
