New England Cottontails Flourish on a Massachusetts Island

It’s a Bunny Paradise
By Ethan Genter

Biologists released 13 rare New England cottontails on Noman’s Land Island in 2019. Today, around 400 of the rabbits roam the 600-acre island off the coast of Massachusetts. Conservationists plan to relocate some of the rabbits to areas on the mainland to start new populations in good habitat or to boost existing populations.
