"Discovering the Delta - An Interactive Exploration of Delta National Wildlife Refuge" is an educational CD-ROM available FREE of charge to educators. The CD-ROM includes a teacher's guide with reference material and correlates the CD content to Louisiana state curriculum learning benchmarks.

Students can virtually explore Delta National Wildlife Refuge — learning about the rich flora and fauna of this remote wildlife refuge, the natural processes of delta formation on the Mississippi River, along with the functions and values of wetlands. Videos of wildlife, photos of the marshes, waterways and critters, lively graphics, and interviews with Fish and Wildlife Service scientists and local residents provide a deeper view of this special marsh habitat located at the Mississippi delta.

This CD was produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Friends of Louisiana Wildlife Refuges, and made possible by a generous grant from Shell Pipeline Company, LP.

Teachers, students, parents, and anyone interested in coastal Louisiana, wildlife, and the National Wildlife Refuge System are invited to request a FREE copy by contacting southeastlouisianarefuges@fws.gov
