Hunting Included in Plan for Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge

Friday, June 3, 2011

The US Fish and Wildlife Service has released a plan that will direct the management of the Atchafalaya Refuge for the next 15 years.  The 44,000-acre Refuge is  one of 8 refuges managed as part of the Southeast Louisiana National Wildlife Refuge Complex.  Three options for managing the refuge are addressed in the plan.  Alternative A is the current management plan and serves as the basis for comparing Alternatives B and C.  In all three options, hunting opportunities will continue and be managed by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries as part of the Sherburne Wildlife Management Area. 

The public comment period for the plan is open until June 23rd and comments may be emailed to tina_chouinard@fws.gov.  The plan is posted online at:  http://southeast.fws.gov/planning under “Draft Documents.”  For further information, you may call Ms. Chouinard at 731-432-0981.
