Metadata (Data about data or how the map was made)

An introduced species known to occur on nine of the islands in San Juan County and Gedney Island and Destruction Island. Lives in grasslands and meadows.

All zones within its range limits were core areas. All habitats were good with the exceptions of bare ground, high density development, medium development, estuaries, and closed forest.

Most habitats are considered good because the European Rabbit makes use of grasslands and meadows of almost any size on the islands, including those on farmlands, lawns in developments, and openings in forests.
