To enable the racers to increase to a more viable level, the project team embarked on an ambitious reintroduction program to restore the snakes on at least five offshore islands that could support a total meta-population of at least 500 breeding adults (ARCP, 1999). , 1998; Varnham, 2001). , 2002), and plans are underway to reintroduce the snakes to an additional island in 2007. , 2003). To monitor changes in the population size, all captured racers are individually marked with microchip tags, which have greatly aided understanding of their biology.

Daltry of extensive herpetological studies through the 1990s, this species was not recorded on the island until 2001, when two were seen (Brian Smith, pers. ). 23 individuals were seen the following year (McIntyre and Phillpot, 2002), and by 2005 this species was so abundant that as many as five individuals could be found within one square metre (pers. ). 6 metres in length’. No specimens have been seen by scientists, but the reports raise the intriguing possibility of another species, perhaps akin to the rarely-seen galliwasp (Diploglossus montiserrati) of Montserrat.
