Right now, only about 1 in 10 wild rabbits in Connecticut are the original, native New England cottontail.
Threatened by habitat loss and invasive species, this once very prevalent breed of rabbit, has seen its native range reduced by 85%. A crucial part of the strategy for recovering this treasured species is properly managing habitat on Connecticut’s state-owned wild lands. However, the state legislature has in the past traded away these state lands without public input by sneaking land swaps into quick moving budget bills.
TAKE ACTION: Tell your Connecticut legislator to stop this practice and stand up for the New England cottontail by co-sponsoring SJ 35.
