Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge's Comprehensive Conservation Plan provides a vision for desired conditions of the Refuge. The plan is designed to result in a diversity of habitats for a variety of fish and wildlife species, enhance resident wildlife populations, and provide opportunities for wildlife-dependent recreation, environmental education, and interpretation activities.
To develop this plan, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (the Service) conducted a biological review of the Refuge and solicited public opinion on the issues the CCP should address. Six priority wildlife-dependent recreational uses (hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, environmental education and interpretation) received priority consideration during the preparation of the CCP, and the Service invited the public to comment on the type, extent, and compatibility of uses.
