The data contained in child items of this page were developed to support the Species Status Assessments conducted by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and conservation planning for State, Federal, and non-government researchers, managers, landowners, and other partners for five focal herpetofauna species: gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus), southern hognose snake (Heterodon simus), Florida pine snake (Pituophis melanoleucus mugitus), gopher frog (Lithobates capito), and striped newt (Notophthalmus perstriatus). These data were developed by the USGS Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit at the University of Georgia in collaboration with other partners. The three child items contain the following data: (1)...
Predators are a known detriment to beach nesting birds at Cape May National Wildlife Refuge. Although the refuge regularly contracts with USDA to provide 2 weeks of predator trapping, predators historically move onto the refuge throughout a breeding season and detrimentally affect the beach nesting birds when contract work has already been spent or USDA is unavailable to get out to specific sites. In recent years, this has resulted in low productivity. Funding is requested to implement more adaptive predation management efforts through either increased trapping duration, and/or to purchase trapping and control supplies for refuge staff, and to purchase supplies to trap and control ghost crabs.

The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation – Natural Heritage Program (DCRDNH) and the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) at Florida State University (collectively, Project Partners) were funded by the South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (SALCC) in April 2015 to develop ten species distribution models (SDM) of priority at-risk and range-restricted species (Ambystoma cingulatum, Echinacea laevigata, Heterodon simus, Lindera melissifolia, Lythrum curtissii, Notophthalmus perstriatus, Phemeranthus piedmontanus, Rhus michauxii, and Schwalbea americana) for the purposes of incorporating the models and supporting information on the conservation and management needs of the species into the...

This mapping project was a collaboration among the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and staff from the Arkansas Game and Fish and Natural Heritage Commissions. It provides general information on the potential environmental risk to species of concern and sensitive habitats from proposed wind energy projects in Arkansas. According to the Land-Based Wind Energy Guidelines, environmental risks include direct impacts e.g., collisions with turbines and associated infrastructure, habitat loss or degradation from turbines and infrastructure, habitat fragmentation, displacement or behavioral changes, and indirect impacts e.g., reduced nesting and breeding densities and the social ramifications of those reductions,...

The three datasets were used in a model estimating the current and future persistence of 222 populations of southern hognose snakes, as estimated as part of the USFWS Species Status Assessment. Because these datasets contain information about sensitive species at risk of overcollection and harassment, they do not contain any spatial identifying information. The "HESIM_locs" dataset contains a list of southern hognose snake occurrence records with associated year of observation and population ID. The "SEsnakes_locs" dataset contains a list of non-target snake species occurrence records with associated year of observation and population ID. The "HESIM_pops_all" dataset contains a list of southern hognose snake populations...
Funding will be provided to Save the Bay, an organization based in Rhode Island that is developing cutting-edge runnelling techniques that are improving thousands of acres of marshes across the region. Save the Bay’s Restoration Director works with partners throughout the Northeast region, and regularly hosts partners in the field and via webinars to share tips and lessons learned on implementing these techniques. Funds will allow her to provide greater regional support in the form of training salt marsh practitioners and sharing evaluation results of runnelling effectiveness that will inform work throughout the Northeast. In addition to these funds, an additional $30,000 of Coastal program funding will supplement...
The Bluestone sculpin (Cottus sp.) is a priority at-risk freshwater fish endemic to the Bluestone River system in Virginia and West Virginia. The species occurs in small, cool streams with gravel and rubble dominated substrates. The taxonomic status of the Bluestone sculpin is unresolved, and its range often overlaps with congeners, with which it may hybridize. To address the conservation status of the Bluestone sculpin, taxonomic analyses are needed to fully describe the species and evaluate the level of hybridization. Additionally, comprehensive surveys and genetic analyses are needed to determine the species range and population connectivity. Locating the species using eDNA may be a viable option.

Natural resource managers are confronted with the pressing challenge to develop conservation plans that address complex ecological and societal needs against the backdrop of a rapidly changing climate. Climate change vulnerability assessments (CCVAs) provide valuable information that helps guide management and conservation actions in this regard. An essential component to CCVAs is understanding adaptive capacity, or the ability of a species to cope with or adjust to climate change. However, adaptive capacity is the least understood and evaluated component of CCVAs. This is largely due to a fundamental need for guidance on how to assess adaptive capacity and incorporate this information into conservation planning...
Funding will replenish a 1,000 foot beach to increase horseshoe crab spawning and egg abundance, which will in turn provide new foraging resources for Ruddy Turnstone, Red Knot, and other migratory shorebirds that use the Great Bay-Little Egg ecosystem, a key stopover for thousands of shorebirds. The project site is located along Forsythe’s wildlife drive, with an adjacent viewing platform, which will provide viewing opportunities for this amazing wildlife spectacle. Signage and stewardship (funded from another source) will be used to prevent human disturbance at the beach. This project will serve as an example of successful shorebird management, and the refuge intends to seek funding for additional replenishment...
The Northeast States identified the Least Shrew as a Regional Species of Greatest Conservation Need. To advance conservation, better information is needed to determine the species distribution and conservation status within the Region. To address this need, we are working with the USGS to develop an eDNA survey protocol that will pilot efforts in Virginia and Maryland. Once the protocol is perfected, the pilot effort will be expanded to cover the species’ entire range to collect critical needed to evaluate the species’ status and infor future conservation strategies.

The raster data in the geodatabase represent range-wide habitat suitability model predictions for five species of herpetofauna: gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus), southern hognose snake (Heterodon simus), Florida pine snake (Pituophis melanoleucus mugitus), gopher frog (Lithobates capito), and striped newt (Notophthalmus perstriatus). Collectively, the habitat suitability rasters extend across the range of these species in the Southeast US, including areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. This assessment was conducted by the USGS Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit at the University of Georgia in collaboration with other partners. Habitat suitability...
