ABSTRACT: The Louisiana Pinesnake (Pituophis ruthveni) faces a myriad of threats, including unsuitable land management practices, habitat fragmentation, and lack of prescribed fire. This species is a candidate for the federal list of threatened and endangered species and is scheduled for listing determination in 2016. Louisiana Pinesnake Conservation Working Group has been focusing on pinesnake conservation for several years. This informal working group consists of government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private industry and has been meeting for more than a decade in order to further conservation efforts rangewide. In addition, there has been an effort to reintroduce this species in presumably unoccupied habitat in its historic range, the Catahoula district of the Kisatchie National Forest. An overview of the Louisiana Pinesnake conservation and reintroduction efforts in Louisiana will be presented.
