Rabbit Sightings

When submitting a sighting to NH Rabbit Reports, we will ask you to report the following information:
  • Date of the observation
  • Time of the observation
  • Location of the sighting (address, intersection, or GPS coordinates)
  • Description of the area and habitat where you saw the rabbit – e.g. backyard, shrubs, forest, roadside, size of the area, height of vegetation, etc. Provide as much detail as possible.
  • Upload a photograph. This can be done on your phone or computer. While you're able to report a sighting without uploading a photograph, attaching an image to your submission will help us potentially identify the species of rabbit. Visit Tips for Photographing Rabbits for information on how to take a photo that provides the most information possible for trying to determine the species.
  • Please note that rabbit sightings must go through an administrative approval process, so they will not instantly appear on the Sightings Map. Due to staff leave in summer/fall 2022, there will be a significant delay in sightings appearing on the map during this time. Thank you in advance for your patience.
