What To Do With The Columbia Basin Pygmy Rabbit | Environment
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is seeking public comments on changes to its plan for pygmy rabbit recovery in the Columbia Basin.
The changing plan calls for a move away from a captive breeding program and toward releasing wild pygmy rabbits from other areas.
Public comments will be accepted until Aug. 15 on the proposed amendment to the 2007 draft recovery plan.
The new draft also calls for surveying the remaining suitable habitat to find out if any wild Columbia Basin pygmy rabbits remain.
You can mail or email comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Eastern Washington field office.
