Since 2008 volunteers of the Friends of Mount Majura, the Mount Ainslie Weeders, the Watson Woodland Working Group and the wider public assisted Parks and Conservation Service with the control of rabbits in the Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura nature reserves. For three years in a row volunteers recorded rabbit warrens using GPS. In 2011/12 fiftyfive volunteers spent over 750 hours monitoring warrens of more than 1300 heactares bushland and recorded 1167 rabbit warrens. Click here to learn more about the project.
