Assessing NJ's Native Reptiles and Amphibians.

Timber Rattlesnake

The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's Endangered and Nongame Species Program recently completed an assessment of the conservation status of the state's native reptiles and amphibians. 

ENSP periodically conducts such assessments for groups of nongame wildlife to help determine which species should be listed on the state's Endangered species list or designated as Threatened, Special Concern, Stable-Secure, or Undetermined-Unknown on the list of nongame wildlife.

For information on this process, including the draft reptile/amphibian report, visit http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/ensp/species_assessment.htm on the Division's website.

Review of this report will be a major agenda item at the January 7, 2016, meeting of the Endangered and Nongame Species Advisory Committee.
