Birchip Landcare Group together with Curyo Rabbit Action Group have undertaken a rabbit ripping program in the Curyo and Kinnabulla areas.
The groups were concerned about the damage rabbits cause to biodiversity, farm productivity and soil erosion.

The project was funded by the Victorian Governments Second Generation Landcare Grants managed by the Mallee Catchment Management Authority.
The target area had seen an increase in rabbit numbers along roadsides. Rabbit ripping has proved to be an effective tool for controlling rabbits, particularly when as part of a combined effort with other common control methods.
