On the Web - The Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation (OCIC) is a cutting edge conservation facility built by The Orianne Society, specifically for the propagation of the eastern indigo snake.
In 2014, the Central Florida Zoological Society, Inc. partnered with The Orianne Society to operate the facility and currently maintains a colony of over 100 indigo snakes for the purpose of reproduction and reintroduction programs.
Since opening the facility in east Lake County, the Center has hatched over 250 indigo snakes, and has aided in the release of over 100 indigo snakes in Conecuh National Forest in Alabama. In addition, the OCIC has established a second release site at The Nature Conservancy’s Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve in Florida.
The work taking place at the OCIC facilitates a comprehensive approach to long-term captive breeding programs for indigo snakes and species of conservation importance.
