Victoria’s Mallee Parks are sprouting back to life after the control of rabbits and other feral animals, thanks to a 20 year program of control and regeneration.
Young pine, buloke and belah trees now grow healthy, where seedlings previously failed to survive. The parks are once more a fully functioning ecosystem, providing habitat and healthy water systems for the Hattah-Kulkyne area.
Rabbit densities of as little as 1 per 2 hectares will prevent the regeneration of palatable plant species.
