Governance & Reports

The Foundation for Rabbit Free Australia is governed by a Committee elected from the Membership. Members may nominate for Committee positions at the AGM each year.

The important role of Patron gives the Foundation credibility as a serious not-for-profit entity grappling a problem with national implications. For this reason, the first Patrons were Governors-General. More recently, Patrons with a strong research background have been invited to play that role.

The current Committee is:

Patron
Dr Brian Cooke

Chairman
Mr Peter Alexander

Mr William Morgan
