Our Vision

Australian landscapes that are free of their most notorious pest - the European wild rabbit

Foundation for Rabbit Free Australia Inc. (RFA)

Rabbit Free Australia is a publicly subscribed fund to support research, raise awareness and encourage on-ground action to eradicate feral rabbits from Australia.

The European wild rabbit is Australia’s worst vertebrate pest, being widespread and destructive to natural environments and primary production.

Rabbits adversely affect over 150 threatened native species, change landscapes, and cause losses of over $200 million a year to agricultural production.
