Kevin Shoemaker says the Cicero Swamp in Central New York is home to 100 to 200 Eastern Massasauga rattlesnakes and that number could be increased with some management of shrub growth to create more open space.
The rattler is an endangered species in New York.
Shoemaker said some combination of cutting, herbicide use, and burning could be used to open habitat for the female snakes to incubate their young.
WTVH broadcast stories about Shoemaker's research during their evening news January 11, 2008.
