Some find it hard to believe that a rabbit—emblematic for prolific breeding could be at risk.

But New England's only native rabbit, the New England cottontail, faces threats that have reduced its range by 86 percent since the mid-20th century.



Restoration of this cottontail includes activities to improve population numbers and habitat. This is a collaborative, range-wide effort among federal, state and local partners--and even students.



In this video, learn about students at Chariho High School in Rhode Island who built wooden traps for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to use to find out where these rabbits have persisted.
