Introducing the wetlands ambassadors team

Louisiana’s wetlands provide important environmental, economic and cultural value to the state and nation. However, Louisiana is losing approximately a football field worth of wetlands every 80 minutes. To increase awareness about the state’s wetlands and the threats they face, the 4-H Wetland Ambassadors Team was developed. The group is made up of students from across the state who aim to become environmentally literate citizens who can act as ambassadors for the wetlands.

In their communities they will give presentations, lead activities and put on exhibits at various events throughout the year. The team will also have opportunities to explore different career options by interacting with wetland-related professionals, such as agents and biologists with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.
