How the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries preserve Louisiana's Sportsman's Paradise

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries does not get state funding for the operation of the department.

During the historic flood of 2016, LDWF Wildlife Agents rescued 3,152 people and 612 pets. 

Hunters spend about $6.6 million on trips and equipment in Louisiana communities each year.
