Australian Geographic - - Walk about -

IN DE­CEM­BER 1859, Thomas Austin in­tro­duced 24 wild rab­bits to Bar­won Park, near Gee­long. By 1920 it is thought there were as many as 10 bil­lion rab­bits across Aus­tralia. Those Wild Rab­bits re­veals the im­mense dam­age in­flicted by rab­bits on Aus­tralia’s en­vi­ron­ment, agri­cul­ture and so­cial co­he­sion and ex­am­ines our mostly fu­tile at­tempts to con­trol them.
