Their distribution in British Columbia is the northern extent of their range west of the Rocky Mountains. Nuttall’s Cottontails have never been abundant in the south Okanagan and their range is restricted to the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys. Their scarcity and limited distribution has prompted the British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Lands, and Parks to place them on the Blue List because of an inadequate understanding of their status. The low abundance of Nuttall’s Cottontails in British Columbia is likely due to habitat loss as well as low recruitment because the species is at the northern extreme of its range.
