Changes proposed in waters around Snake Key

-A A +A

The Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge is exploring a seasonal closure of Snake Key’s near-shore waters out to 100 yards to protect nesting birds from March 1 to June 30, mirroring the former closure at Seahorse Key.

A public notification process will gather input on the proposed closure for 2018.
Snake Key is an island off of the City of Cedar Key in the Gulf of Mexico and is part of the CKNWR established in 1929. The 800-acre refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for wildlife and wildlife-oriented outdoor recreation. The primary purpose of the refuge is to serve as breeding grounds for colonial-nesting marine birds. Snake Key is approximately 32.5 acres and is completely surrounded by shallow water, and is mostly closed to the public except for the small beach. The island is composed of two islands divided by a very narrow (~25 foot) channel, but is considered one landmass.
