Four known populations, each with 100-1400 individuals (LeBlond 2002; Sinclair 2004).
The Department of Defense plans to monitor and manage the three populations located on the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base according to the guidelines proposed by NCNHP and USFWS, including partnering with NCBG for germplasm storage. The management goal will be to keep the populations from falling by more than 30 % for a ten-year period. If this drop occurs, the DOD, USFWS, and NCNHP will review the management plan and could suggest alterations.
The fourth population is located on private land. The landowners were contacted and educated about the conservation need, and the USFWS plans to pursue a more formal conservation agreement, (Sinclair 2004).
