Range Description

The San José Brush Rabbit is found only on San José Island (approximate total area is 170 km²) in the Gulf of California, Baja California Sur, Mexico, just north of the city of La Paz. Due to a lack of field investigations, prior assessments assumed that the San José Brush Rabbit occupied the entire island (Romero and Rangel 2008). Recent detailed, island-wide surveys (1995, 1996, 2008) have determined that the rabbit occupies only a restricted range of approximately 20 km² along the southwest coastal plain (Lorenzo et al. 2011). This area constitutes a single continuous population, thus the extent of occurrence (EOO) is equivalent to the area of occupancy (AOO).
