AT&T contributes to Ecotourism in Plaquemines

On Friday, October 31, AT&T announced a contribution to Woodlands Conservancy in Belle Chasse to assist in its efforts to preserve and develop an ecosystem dedicated to creating daily public opportunities for recreation, ecotourism and education in a natural and historic setting. With the continuing loss of wetlands coupled with relative sea level rise, the United States Fish & Wildlife Services estimates that Woodlands Conservancy lands will be one of the largest forested landmasses between open water and the city of New Orleans within the next 35-50 years. “The value of this land and the role it plays in South Louisiana through our job market, tourism and economic development opportunities is tremendous,” said State Representative Chris Leopold. “The conservancy’s efforts to educate our children are invaluable, as we need to ensure that our future generations understand the importance of lands they will inherit.”
