Why Rabbits need to be kept under control in such areas

Rabbits grazing in historical sites seldom causes a problem.

But burrowing can cause immense damage to these often-fragile structures. Subsidence and other erosion related issues caused by rabbits burrowing often provoke archaeological sites to deteriorate at an accelerated rate. Artefacts and human remains are often unearthed via rabbits burrowing digging in heritage sites.

 

How we work

We have worked to protect various ancient sites across the UK from the damage caused by rabbits.

From Mesolithic sites in southern England to those in the Hebrides in the north west of Scotland. Numerous Ancient sites such Iron Age Hill forts in the West Country along with burial mounds to the east have all benefited from the actions of Evergreen Rabbit Control.

In each instance, we have worked to strict guidelines set by Archaeologists and conservation groups. This often includes a rule of no digging and reporting any finds. The methods used to resolve rabbit problems in such locations vary and rabbit proofing is sometimes required to avoid future problems.
