This will be the first blog entry for Rockefeller Refuge, but hopefully many more will come after.
Anyone familiar with Southwest Louisiana understands the ecological significance this area provides for species like migratory birds. The history places like Rockefeller have when it resurrecting the American Alligator from a species of concern, to a commodity. And the communal feelings of living in the great outdoors but knowing that your neighbors, although far off, will come help you with anything, including the boiled crabs you caught earlier in the day.
There isn't a day we don't capture something amazing in the outdoors, primarily through photo and video but also through our research and data collection. We are always looking forward to the next adventure, the next piece of data that allows us to come upon another realization of Louisiana's outdoors.
This blog will be a space for the refuge to share some of those moments.
