In November 2011, conservationists and captive-breeding specialists released nine three- to four-month-old New England cottontails at Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge on the southern coast of Rhode Island. The rabbits, born from matings between wild cottontails from Connecticut, were placed in a 1-acre brushy area surrounded by predator-proof fencing. As of February 2012, they were doing well in their semi-wild home.
