The Orianne Society is a is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the conservation of imperiled snakes around the world. Our conservation efforts are modeled after our flagship program to restore and conserve the Eastern Indigo Snake. We work with a diverse group of partners using science to guide our on-the-ground conservation efforts for snakes and the ecosystems they inhabit. We are focused on outcomes and succeed through dedication and hard work.
Our unique name is derived from a young girl who had the opportunity to hold an Eastern Indigo Snake; her love for this snake prompted her to ask her father to do something to save them from extinction. In response, her father provided the seed money to create The Orianne Society, the world's foremost comprehensive species-based conservation organization. We strive every day at The Orianne Society to make Orianne's dream a reality — for the Eastern Indigo Snake, and imperiled snakes around the world.
