Wild Eastern Indigo Snakes Return to Alabama

So cool!


Outdoor Alabama
January 17, 2020

The first known, wild Eastern indigo snake was recently discovered at Conecuh National Forest in South Alabama. The snake is approximately 7 months old and is a product of Alabama’s Eastern Indigo Snake Reintroduction and Monitoring Project. More than 60 years have passed since this species was last documented in the wild in Alabama. This is a significant milestone in the project because it confirms that Eastern indigos raised in captivity can survive, reproduce, and exist as wild snakes.

The Eastern Indigo Reintroduction Project is made possible through Alabama’s State Wildlife Grants Program. Project partners include: The Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division, the Auburn University Museum of Natural History, The Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation, the U.S. Forest Service, the Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
