September Hearings Allow for Public Comment on Proposed Reintroduction of Non-migratory Whooping Cranes in Louisiana

Release Date: 09/07/2010

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) will host two public hearings this month to determine if there are concerns on the proposal to re-establish a non-migratory flock of whooping cranes in the wetlands of southwestern Louisiana.

Public hearings will be held:

Gueydan Civic Center, 901 Wilkinson St., Gueydan, LA 70542

Sept. 16, 2010

LDWF headquarters, 2000 Quail Drive Baton Rouge, LA 70808

Each public hearing will last from 7 - 9 p.m. Before each hearing, an open house from 6 to 7 p.m. will provide an additional opportunity for the public to gain information and ask questions about the proposed rule.

All comments received at a public hearing, both verbal and written, will be considered in making a final decision. If this proposal is approved, the reintroduction effort could begin during early 2011.

Additionally, the public can comment on the proposal on or before October 18. 2010 through any of the following methods:

Birds Saved from Deepwater Horizon Oil Impacts Released at Atchafalaya Delta Wildlife Management Area

Release Date: 08/27/2010

State and federal biologists today released another 79 birds rehabilitated after rescue from oil impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill along the Louisiana coast.

Atchafalaya Delta Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in St. Mary Parish was selected by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) as the release site due to its location and high quality habitat for the species involved.

"LDWF's coastal wildlife refuges and management areas provide thousands of acres of habitat not affected by the oil spill," said Robert Barham, LDWF secretary. "It is an encouraging sign for the wildlife recovery process to see more birds released each week."

The birds released today, which were treated at the Hammond Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, included gulls, herons, rails, roseate spoonbills and terns. To date, 978 birds have been treated and released in Louisiana as part of the massive wildlife rescue and recovery effort.

Atchafalaya Delta WMA in coastal St. Mary Parish includes 137,695 acres at the mouths of the Atchafalaya River and the Wax Lake Outlet. The WMA is managed by LDWF's Coastal and Non-game Resources Division.

To report oiled wildlife, call 1-866-557-1401 with date, time and location information. For a complete report on wildlife rescue and recovery numbers along the Gulf Coast during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill response, go tohttp://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/doctype/2931/55963.
