Free Waterfowl Of Louisiana Poster Available

The Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) is now offering its latest poster publication entitled Waterfowl of Louisiana; Species Identification.

This free 24” x 36,” full-colored, glossy poster features 23 different waterfowl species including pictures, common and scientific names of all the species. Illustrations of the birds were done by Stephanie Donaldson, owner of Purple Penguin Art Company in Thibodaux.

“I was honored to be involved in this project,” said Donaldson. “To be able to use art to show the beauty that we do often take for granted in our diverse landscape was truly a pleasure.”

The goal of the poster is to provide an educational guide in order to identify migratory waterfowl species, which utilize Louisiana’s diverse ecosystem. The poster can be used by a wide variety of user groups. Hunters can use the poster to teach youth about various species, whereas, wood carvers may find the images useful for creating works of art. Teachers of all educational programs will find the poster colorful and scientifically correct. The poster will also help people understand the value of our wetlands to these beautiful waterfowl.

The public is invited to stop by the BTNEP office to pick up a copy of this free poster. For more information regarding the poster or any BTNEP publication, please visit our website at www.BTNEP.org or call the office at 985-447-0868.
