Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Units Program: Louisiana
Education, Research and Technical Assistance for Managing Our Natural Resources

Louisiana Diversity and Inclusion

The Louisiana Unit studies wetlands and wetland-dependent wildlife to enhance their conservation and management. Shown from left to right: blue crab, dead trees from salt water intrusion, students in airboat in the marsh, snow geese arising at dawn from a wetland at Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, and a student examining a massive baldcypress tree at Cache River National Wildlife Refuge.

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice are vital to our mission in the Cooperative Research Units. We are dedicated to building a culture of inclusivity and respect through graduate education, research, and technical assistance. We oppose discrimination and racism in all of their forms and embrace diversity as a source of strength, ingenuity, and inspiration. We also acknowledge, with respect, that the lands and waters on which we perform research and teaching are the traditional and ancestral homelands of indigenous Nations and peoples.
