Response Statement - Eastern Ribbonsnake, Atlantic population

Recent extensive survey efforts to quantify the abundance and distribution of this cryptic and hard to identify snake confirm that it is rare and has a very small distribution. However, little is known about population trends. Fluctuations in population numbers and a continuing decline in overall numbers of mature individuals are suspected; both increase the susceptibility to stochastic events. Shoreline development and its associated risk is an increasing threat throughout much of the range.
