The Emma Bridgewater Hare Mug features a neat row of handpainted Hares sitting down, a rare occurrence you’re unlikely to see in real life as wild hares like their own company. Hares live on their own and sometimes in pairs.
Hares are bigger, faster and more independent than Rabbits, in the UK there are 3 species The Brown Hare, The Mountain Hare and The Irish Hare. There are a further 29 species worldwide.
Hares are on the decline in the UK there used to be around 4 million, there are now only around 700000. Only one other UK mammal has suffered similar losses, Hares need our support.
