IMPACT OF THE PROJECT
Reverse negative population trends in rabbit populations in order to attain an IUCN threat categoria of “Vulnerable”, thereby contributing to the conservation of the main species that prey on rabbits.
Lessen the damage caused by rabbits to agriculture via the implementation of approved measures.
Protect, conserve and improve the natural capital of the Iberian Peninsula.
Improve evaluations of the state of habitat conservation using rabbits as an indicator species.
DAMAGE TO AGRICULTURE
Safeguard the rabbit’s role as an ecosystem engineer that affects the composition of plant communities, soil structure and the populations of various species of invertebrates and small vertebrates.
Strengthen populations that are ecologically (as prey) and/or socio-economically (as small-game) relevant.
Increase ecosystems resilience.
