The Lower Keys Marsh Rabbit is classified as an endangered species in Florida. Approximately 250 rabbits remain in the wild according to enature.com. Their biggest threats include cats, automobiles, and loss of habitat. Therefore, keeping cats indoors and making sure they are spayed/neutered in order to prevent an increased number of feral or outdoor cats is one step that can be taken to preserve the marsh rabbit. A second measure would be to warn drivers of the marsh rabbit’s presence using road signs similar to “deer crossing” signs. And, perhaps most importantly, the marsh rabbits’ habitat must be preserved in order for their population to thrive. Contacting local and state government officials is one way to express your interest in this specie’s conservation.
