Tracking Black Racer Snakes

Presentation by Liz Baldwin: Assistant Director & Wildlife Biologist, BiodiversityWorks on Martha’s Vineyard

Black racer snakes were historically an abundant species. Today they are uncommon and are a MassWildlife priority species. BiodiversityWorks has been gathering important information about their habitat use and movements that will inform future management and conservation of this species. Learn about the adventures of radio-tagging black racer snakes as well as the natural history of these and other local snakes, and how you can help all snakes thrive in our changing landscape. In the past, Liz has presented for HCT about North American river otters and bats of New England.
