R. C. Davis and the LA Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation came together in a single purpose: contribute towards the repopulation of the Whooping Cranes in Louisiana. Mr. Davis' altruistic desire resulted in the beautiful painting, "Taking Flight." Thanks to Mr. Davis and the foundation, all funds generated from the sales of these prints go directly into project funding. To order your print, please visit our "Taking Flight" reservation page.
Whooping Crane Project Funding
The LA Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is working cooperatively with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the US Geological Survey, the International Crane Foundation and the LA Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit to restore the whooping crane within Louisiana. Your donations are appreciated.
Louisiana Saltwater Series
The Louisiana Saltwater Series continues to be extremely successful. Thanks to all participants. Developed by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), in conjunction with the Foundation, the series promotes conservation of Louisiana’s saltwater sport fish resources, including one of Louisiana’s most valuable sport fish, redfish, through catch and release tournaments in the spring through the fall.
Waddill Summer Camp
LDWF provides a Summer Camp at the Waddill Outdoor Education Center in Baton Rouge for children 12 to 16 years old. Participants were able to receive their official LDWF boater and hunter education certifications. The camp was split between class work and outdoor activities that consisted of fishing and canoeing in the ponds at the Waddill Outdoor Education Center, skeet shooting, air rifles, archery and casting practice.
