Efforts underway to return eastern indigo snake to northern Florida


Last week, snakes were released into the northern part of Florida as part of an effort to reintroduce the species.

Twelve eastern indigo snakes were released as a part of The Nature Conservancy’s ten-year program. These snakes are listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act.

The eastern indigo snakes are apex predators, however, they are not venomous.
