The Friends of Louisiana Wildlife Refuges support a legacy of conservation in our region.

The Friends of Louisiana Wildlife Refuges Inc. support a wide variety of projects at the Southeast Louisiana National Wildlife Refuges Complex. As a non-profit organization, our Friends group seeks funding from private and public sources; and secures grants for habitat restoration, special events, and education projects. They serve as advocates in the local community, conduct fund-raising activities to support environmental education programs, and help operate and maintain the refuge facilities.  Visit the Friends' website to connect with them and learn more about how you can explore the refuges and help steward our wildlife heritage.
