MAF Biosecurity New Zealand (MAFBNZ) commissioned this report in August 2009. It is intended to inform and guide improvements to rabbit management. Its findings and recommendations will next be tested within a review of the pest management system that is already underway (the Future of Pest Management project). In part, it was also prompted by a request from Federated Farmers of New Zealand for public funding of rabbit control on private land.
