  • Notice: The South Florida Ecological Service’s Office is currently in the process of revising the August 2013 Programmatic Indigo Snake Key (found at this link) for consultations in the jurisdiction of this office. The revisions will update the key based on best available science and the eastern indigo snake’s observed use of habitat in South Florida in addition to the xeric habitat (scrub, sandhill, or scrubby flatwoods) currently identified in this key. Therefore, if your project is in eastern indigo snake habitat including: pine flatwoods, pine rocklands, scrubby flatwoods, high pine, dry prairie, tropical hardwood hammocks, hydric hammocks, edges of fresh water marsh, agricultural fields, abandoned or inactive citrus groves, coastal dunes, or human-altered habitats and has the potential to affect 25 acres or more of habitat, formal consultation under the Endangered Species Act is likely warranted. Please contact our office before completing the evaluation of your project with the August 2013 Eastern Indigo Snake Programmatic Effect Determination Key. Additional revisions will include clarification of other refugia used by the eastern indigo snake. Thank you.
