Snakes of the United States - Center for Snake Conservation

The Center for Snake Conservation needs your help to collect distributional data for all wild snakes in the United States. Please record all snakes including any snakes found dead on a road or elsewhere. Please include additional information about your spotting that can help us understand a bit more about the snake. As we collect spottings, we can increase our knowledge about snakes and help educate others that view our photos. Snakes are often unnecessarily feared and we can help change the human perception through our postings. Sign in to join mission

Snakes play vital roles as mid- to top-level predators in our natural ecosystems but they are often very misunderstood and feared by humans. This makes conservation efforts for snakes very difficult. In addition, we lack good geographic distribution records for many species of snakes which limits our ability to adequately measure their conservation needs. The CSC is working hard to increase our knowledge about snakes, their conservation needs, and to educate people about the important roles snakes play in our world. It would take scientists a lifetime to collect the same data that Citizen Scientists can collect using Project Noah. Anyone who can identify a snake or even take a picture to submit can provide important information that enables researchers to learn which species or areas may need additional conservation focus and effort.
