While many tourists make their way to Louisiana to enjoy the special sort of wildlife only found on Bourbon Street, the coastal areas of Louisiana offer a completely different type of wildlife enjoyed by many visitors to our great state!

St. Bernard is a beautiful parish nestled in southeast New Orleans.  In 2007 and 2008, the parish was the fastest growing county, or parish (as we call them in Louisiana), in the United States, according to the U.S.

Vermilion Parish has a strong reputation – it’s known as “the most Cajun place on Earth.” This is a lot to say about a small parish in coastal Louisiana, but it couldn’t be more true!

When visiting what Louisiana locals call "Cajun Country", visitors quickly see that the locals set the pace and take the time to enjoy the natural habitat around them, and one of the most enjoyable activities in Cajun Country happens to be the simplest of them all: bird watching.

Not only is the brown pelican the state bird of Louisiana, but it's a unique species that received much attention after the BP Oil Spill. The brown pelican is found along the ocean shores of the southwestern states, namely Louisiana.
