To help control the number of feral rabbits in local parks and reserves the City of Ryde will be releasing the calicivirus (RHDV1 K5 strain) on Monday 11 February 2019 at Ryde Park and Dunbar Park. This will be part of a coordinated release involving a number of other councils and agencies across northern Sydney. Rabbit owners should speak with their vet about vaccinating their rabbits against the calicivirus. For more information please visit our Feral Rabbits page or contact Customer Service on 9952 8222.
