Ways to Get Involved

Our approach to conservation is engagement with our community – from private landowners wanting to improve endangered species habitat on their land to non-profits doing on-the-ground work.

Our Partners

Partnerships are the foundation of our work – from working with landowners to enhance and restore private lands to partnering with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries and federal agencies to plan conservation across the state.


The Louisiana field office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service offers information and programs to the public concerning threatened and endangered species, biodiversity, and wildlife ecology, as well as other natural resource-oriented issues in Louisiana.

Education Programs

Conservation Connect Series

Conservation Connect is a middle school level web-based video series produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Visit the Conservation Connect page to learn more!

This series inspires a new generation of conservation stewards by taking students on e-fieldtrips across the country to learn more about wildlife species, conservation careers, and technology used to study and protect these wild creatures.

Our 6-8 minute episodes are available for teachers to watch with their students, and lesson plans are available in our “Educational Toolbox” tab. During the school year, your class has the opportunity to participate in Live broadcasts and ask questions to real wildlife experts.

Conservation Connect Toolboxes are packaged episodes with additional middle school related content such as Conservation Connect lesson plans tailored to the Next Generation Science Standards, an activity guide, and a photo gallery for your students to use.
