Tracking the New England Cottontail
The New England Cottontail (NEC) rabbit's ideal habitat has been greatly reduced due to massive development taking place over the last century. Efforts are underway from east of the Hudson River into New England to avoid having the NEC placed on the endangered species list by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service by creating new habitats to increase the overall population of NEC rabbits.
In an attempt to avoid this classification, the Tribe’s Natural Resources Department has acquired funding from USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service through USET to conduct an animal inventory on tribal lands and in the tribal use area on Cape Cod. Learn more about our efforts here.
