Indigo Snake Conservation Effort

Project Orianne is an Indigo Snake conservation initiative that works to conserve and restore eastern indigo snake populations as well as other species of rare reptiles including Chinese Alligators, Montane Vipers, and Tortoises. The Orlando Sentinel (August 26, 2010) reports that the Lake County commissioners approved a change in zoning that will allow Project Orianne to use a 25 acre plot to culture snakes, despite a complaint form a neighbor. Fred Antonio, former curator of the Central Florida Zoo will be director of the project. JCM
