Louisiana - Sportsmen's Paradise No More.
Please read the following articles about privatizing our public waters in Louisiana.

As you know, Atchafalaya Basinkeeper and LCPA-West have been on the front lines trying to stop the privatization of our public waters by the state of Louisiana. The state wants to use billions of tax dollars to restore wetlands that are privately claimed by corporations and millionaires who have no interest in protecting those wetlands.

This privatization of public waters is seriously affecting the well being and economy of the state, our commercial fishermen from providing seafood, sport fishermen from recreating in our waters, charter fishermen from making a living, ecotourism from developing, and nature lovers from enjoying our waters.


You can help by calling other environmental groups to join the fight, and by calling your senators, representatives and your parish president requesting that they protect public access and waters of the state from private claim. Most importantly, you can help ABK by getting your friends and family members to join us. We need everyone’s support to continue to protect your waters, your access and your Atchafalaya Basin.
