Response Statements

Response Statement - Eastern Ribbonsnake, Great Lakes population

The Great Lakes population is relatively widespread and appears to be locally abundant in a few sites. However, quantitative data are lacking on population size and trends, and most information is anecdotal and from protected areas.  Wetland and shoreline habitat loss and road development continue at an alarming rate within their range and present a significant threat to the species. Unless those losses are reversed the species is at risk of becoming Threatened. Road mortality and habitat loss are widespread and much of the species distribution occurs in pockets of habitat surrounded by agricultural land, roads and shoreline development.
