Rabbit Book – ‘Those Wild Rabbits’

RFA is a key sponsor of a unique book about rabbits, and rabbit research, in Australia. ‘Those Wild Rabbits – How They Shaped Australia’, authored by writer and conservationist Bruce Munday, tells the tale of the European wild rabbit in Australia through the eyes of those associated with it – the people who brought it here, had fun shooting it, wept over its devastation of everything they valued, dreamt of controlling it, searched for cures to the rabbit curse, and rejoiced when their efforts finally paid off. It is an internationally important story about the introduction of feral pests and the crucial research needed for their control.

The book highlights the damage that wild rabbits cause and the critical need for ongoing research to maintain control.

For more information, see the RFA MediaRelease.

 

Copies of ‘Those Wild Rabbits’ may be ordered direct from Bruce Munday or through the publisher, Wakefield Press.
