Habitat loss and fragmentation are factors leading to declines in many faunal populations. Restoring habitats to support the rebound of local populations may help to remedy these declines, but in cases where a species has been extirpated, natural recolonization is unlikely. Translocation has proven to be a successful strategy for the repatriation of some extirpated populations, but its effectiveness is unclear and understudied in snakes.
