Their reliance on sagebrush growing in deep soil created the biggest challenge for the species in the wild. The Columbia River (forming much of the border between Oregon and Washington) is surrounded by sagebrush that's perfect for pygmy rabbits . . . and awful for farmers. Hopefully, with continued progress and habitat protection, they can one day run hop freely around the Pacific Northwest!
