What We Do
Science-fueled boots-on-the-ground conservation.
- Eastern Indigo Snake Initiative
The Orianne Society is dedicated to the range-wide conservation of our flagship species, the Eastern Indigo Snake. We're achieving success by using sound science and direct on-the-ground conservation. We are focused on outcomes, and succeed through dedication and hard work.
- Species-Based Conservation
Using our Indigo Snake Initiative as an ideal model for species conservation, we work with a diverse group of partners to conserve imperiled snakes all over the world. From our work to save the Timber Rattlesnake in the northern Appalachians, to the elusive Bushmaster in the rainforests of Central America, The Orianne Society is at the forefront of reptile conservation.
Teaming with the Southeastern Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation and the South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative, we are identifying Priority Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Areas (PARCAs) in the southeastern Untied States. These are used to target areas that are vital habitat and provide large viable populations of certain species.
The Orianne Society is foremost a scientific organization dedicated to contributing to the greater body of knowledge in the herpetological and conservation science fields. Our scientific papers are peer-reviewed and published in respected journals. Here are some of the more recent papers members of our staff have authored.
