In 2008 Friends of Mount Majura successfully lobbied the ACT Government to allocate funds for rabbit control in the Mount Ainslie and Mount Majura nature reserves and the woodlands of Justice Robert Hope Park in North Watson. Control work was carried out from late summer to winter 2009 following the mapping of warrens by volunteers.
Parks, Conservation and Lands plans a follow-up rabbit control program for Summer 2009/10 and volunteers are invited to participate in a second round of mapping warrens.
Volunteers will receive free training in the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) and an introduction on how to identify active rabbit warrens in the field.
