They're saving the tiniest bunnies:


Yay.

The Columbia Basin pygmy rabbit is a genetically distinct sub-population of pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis), the smallest rabbit in North America. By 2002, only 16 pygmy rabbits remained in Washington. The Columbia Basin pygmy rabbit is listed as endangered federally and in Washington state.

Once on the verge of extinction, these kitten-sized rabbits are beginning to repopulate their historic range thanks to the Oregon Zoo and its conservation partners.
