Some of Atchafalaya Basinkeeper’s Notable accomplishments:
Saved most of our coastal cypress swamps (over half a million acres) from becoming cypress mulch or wood pellets, stopped all illegal development of wetlands in the Basin.
Worked with pipeline companies and oil companies to minimize their impacts.
Running a very effective monitoring and enforcement program.
Stopped illegal dumping of oil waste into our Basin’s wetlands.
Stopped our Basin from becoming a dump for oil and fracking waste from all over the country.
Permit enforcement that our agencies are not doing.
ABK has protected more wetlands than any other group. We are honored that Dean Wilson (Founder and Executive Director) was chosen as one of 20 out of over 300 Waterkeepers around the world as a Waterkeeper Warrior representing the best of the Waterkeeper Alliance.
