Simplified Speech #020 – The curious case of the UVic bunnies

If you walked onto a university campus and saw hundreds of rabbits, you might think you were dreaming, but this was the reality at the University of Victoria for more than 20 years! Still can’t believe it? Join Andrew and Morag in this episode as they talk all about the UVic bunnies and their mysterious disappearance.

Fun facts

At the height of their population, it’s estimated that there were between 1,400 and 2,000 rabbits living on the University of Victoria campus! However, UVic isn’t the only place in Canada to have a problem with large populations of wild bunnies. Canmore and Banff in Alberta, Sudbury in Ontario, and three other locations on Vancouver Island (other than UVic) were once, or are still, populated by large numbers of wild rabbits.
