Louisiana Atchafalaya Basin Program - The Atchafalaya Basin, at 575,000 acres, is the nation's largest swamp wilderness, containing significant expanses of bottomland hardwoods, swamp lands, bayous and back-water lakes. Fish and wildlife values are staggering, and one half of the migratory species in the North American flyway use the area each year. The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are working jointly to protect the natural resources and enhance sustainable multiple use of the basin.

Louisiana Coast 2050 - 40% of the coastal wetlands in the lower 48 states are located in Louisiana. And yet Louisiana loses 1 acre every 24 minutes! Find out why this is happening and the federal, state and local efforts that are being made to stop the loss of our precious wetlands.

Louisiana Department of Natural Resources - The mission of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is to preserve and enhance the nonrenewable natural resources of the state, which include land, water, oil, gas and other minerals. This goal can be reached through conservation, regulation and management/exploitation to ensure that the State of Louisiana realizes appropriate economic benefits from its asset base.

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is responsible for managing and protecting Louisiana's abundant natural resources. This site includes hunting, fishing and boating information and regulations, as well as license information.
