Texas is home to more than 70 species (and more subspecies) of snakes, 21 of which are currently ranked as Species of Greatest Conservation Need.
To gain a better understanding of snakes and all reptiles and amphibians, Texas Nature Trackers initiated an iNaturalist project on August 29, 2012.
To date, iNaturalist users have provided more than 150,000 observations of “herps” including more than 3,600 of snakes.
Texas Nature Trackers Biologist Craig Hensley will explore the natural history of snakes including their importance, challenges they face and what you can do to help us continue to better understand these ecologically important predators through iNaturalist, including during the upcoming City Nature Challenge.
