AUTHORS: Mark D. Howery, Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation

ABSTRACT: In coordination with other wildlife diversity programs in the southeast, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has conducted, or provided the funding to conduct, surveys for a wide range of federally-petitioned species including the Oklahoma Salamander (Eurycea tynerensis), Rocky Shiner (Notropis suttkusi), Longnose Darter (Percina nasuta), Alligator Snapping Turtle (Macroclemys temminckii), Western Chicken Turtle (Deirochelys reticularia miaria) and Pyramid Pigtoe (Plerobema rubrum). The results of these surveys will be presented along with their implications for similar work in neighboring SEAFWA states. Each of these species is recognized as a species of greatest conservation need in Oklahoma and each of these surveys has received funding through the State Wildlife Grants program. This work compliments the efforts by other state wildlife agencies working in partnership through the Southeastern At-risk Species (SEARS) initiative of the SEAFWA Wildlife Diversity Committee.
