Can you help us with our online survey?

We are currently trying to find out information about handling methods used by people who own and work with rabbits. Little research has looked at the different methods of handling rabbits and your answers to our questions will help add to our knowledge and to future guidelines that may be developed.

If you own, show or work with rabbits please fill in our Rabbit handling survey.
