Australian pet rabbit health and welfare study

Participants are sought for a study investigating pet rabbit husbandry and management in Australia and how it impacts on rabbit health and welfare. 

What's involved?

Participants will be asked to take an online survey that should only take 20 minutes to complete.

All participants go into the running to win a handmade, personalised rabbit mug from Carcoar Pottery.


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • 18 years or older
  • a current Australian resident (excluding Queensland residents – pet rabbits are illegal in that state)
  • a current owner or breeder of rabbits
