Marcy Schaaf is the woman behind the California rabbit rescue, SaveABunny. Fifteen years ago, burnt out from working as a high-level advertising and marketing executive, Schaaf decided to step out of the rat race. She used this new found free time to foster bunnies, and quickly fell in love with the species. Since then, she’s put her work ethic and business skills to work running SaveABunny. The all-volunteer organization has saved over 5,000 rabbits from being euthanized.
Recently, the group was awarded a $25,000 grant from the ASPCA to expand their operation.

A very elusive species of rabbit was caught on camera by a group of researchers who were in Sumatra studying wild cats.
According to Jennifer McCarthy, lead author and doctoral candidate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst:
As part of my dissertation research on the four felids, or cats, we also happened to get pictures of this very rare rabbit. There had been a few camera-trap photos seen of it before, but very, very rarely. We wanted to take these observations a step further, so we worked with colleagues from the University of Delaware and the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Indonesia Program to contact every researcher we knew throughout Sumatra who was doing camera-trap research, probably 20 or 30 people. This gave us good coverage of the island.
This unique striped rabbit was first photographed in 1998 and has been rarely seen since.
