LA Gulf Response
Louisiana Volunteer Program

LA GULF RESPONSE is a coordinated effort between several non-profit or governmental conservation and environmental organizations.  Together our organizations have made a significant commitment to the restoration of coastal Louisiana reflected by our established body of work in this region.





The mission of the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) is the preservation and restoration of the Barataria-Terrebonne estuary system, the 4.2 million acres between the Atchafalaya and Mississippi river basins. BTNEP strives to rebuild and protect the estuary for future generations through the implementation of a science-based, consensus-driven plan that utilizes partnerships focused on the estuary’s rich cultural, economic, and natural resources.


For over two decades the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana has worked to restore and protect a sustainable coastal Louisiana.  CRCL represents a unique mix of businesses, local governments, industries, scientific communities, national and local conservation organization groups, hunters, anglers and a broad spectrum of concerned citizens who all share a common commitment to the sustainability of coastal Louisiana.


Audubon's mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. Our national network of community-based nature centers and chapters, scientific and educational programs, and advocacy on behalf of areas sustaining important bird populations, engage millions of people of all ages and backgrounds in positive conservation experiences.



The mission of the Nature Conservancy is to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.
