Alive! In America’s Delta: The Whooping Crane’s Majestic Return DVD - $25.00

Trace the landmark effort to reintroduce the whooping crane into Louisiana’s wetlands. Seventy years ago these 5-foot tall stately birds were on the brink of extinction, with only 16 left in the world. Trek along with Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries biologists and their partners and witness their painstaking efforts to reintroduce the whooping crane into Louisiana’s wetlands for the first time in half a century.

Follow the birds from hatchlings at a national research facility in Maryland, through the delicate dance to adapt to their new Louisiana home in a carefully constructed pen, where people in crane suits -- worn to protect the birds from human contact – oversee their historic, but fragile homecoming.

Alive! In America’s Delta: Life on the Edge DVD - $25.00

One of the most ecologically diverse regions on the planet, Louisiana is home to over 600 species of rare plants and animals and about 40% of the nation’s coastal wetlands in the lower 48 states. With a rich diversity of habitats from upland forests to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico and everything in-between, including longleaf pine forests, cypress swamps, prairies, freshwater marsh, and sandy beaches, this region provides homes for an abundance of migratory and year-round wildlife and reptiles. Nearly 40% of the nation’s shorebirds, raptors and songbirds and 70% of ducks move through this rich coastal delta. But many species are on the edge of extinction due to loss of habitat and changes brought on by humans.

Meet a few of the many relatively unknown creatures struggling for survival like the Louisiana pine snake and the gopher tortoise, and get to know the people behind the scenes working tirelessly to save them. Discover how two of America’s most iconic species, the American bald eagle and the American alligator were brought back from the edge, and why sustainable management is essential to the future of these and countless other species. Discover how new technology and scientific understanding is helping to protect this wildlife and its critical habitat for generations to come, and how their survival is tied to our own.

Alive! In America’s Delta: Endangered in the Gulf DVD - $25.00

The shallow and deep sea habitats of the northern Gulf of Mexico are extraordinarily rich and diverse. But some marine mammal and bird species in this region are in danger of being lost forever. Birds such as the piping plover and the least tern face tremendous threats. Five of the world’s seven species of sea turtles rely on habitat in the Gulf of Mexico and three are close to extinction. Other Gulf marine species like the West Indian manatee, the Gulf sturgeon, and sperm and right whales are also endangered. Many Gulf mammals, such as dolphins, need special protection and monitoring to remain healthy.

Find out how cutting edge technology is being used to monitor and protect these species and see just how successful these efforts can be. A symbol of hope is the brown pelican, Louisiana’s state bird. Once decimated by the pesticide DDT, it was first declared endangered in 1970. But, thanks to aggressive conservation efforts now employed across the Gulf coast zone, the iconic bird thrives on the Gulf Coast.

Alive! In America’s Delta: Delta Guardians DVD - $25.00

See the wide range of skills used to police and prosecute poachers, educate people about water and firearm safety, and manage and protect seafood and wildlife populations and their habitats. Follow these protectors of America’s delta deep into the swamps, forests marshes and coastal waters of Louisiana’s wetlands. Witness tireless and heroic efforts to protect Louisiana’s natural resources and the people who use them for recreation or commercial gain.

Alive! In America’s Delta: Black Bear Comeback DVD - $25.00

By the early 1990s, there were estimated to be fewer than 300 Louisiana black bears left in the world. More than 80% of their bottomland forest habitat had been lost, converted to agriculture and destroyed for development. Habitat fragmentation, human disturbance and over hunting decimated populations once abundant throughout Louisiana, Southern Mississippi and Eastern Texas.

One of sixteen subspecies of American black bear, these shy but curious creatures were immortalized as the inspiration for the “Teddy Bear” during an infamous bear hunt in the early 1900’s. Today, thanks to an aggressive, broad-based effort to reestablish this endangered animal and restore its habitat through improved land management, high-tech monitoring and public education, the Louisiana black bear is on its way to being removed from protected status.

Find out why this bear has captured America’s imagination and adoration for more than a century, and the lengths some will go to save them.

Alive! In America’s Delta: Alligator: King of the Bayou DVD - $25.00

The American alligator is the largest reptile in North America and Louisiana has millions of them – from the coastal parishes to the Arkansas state line. They are so plentiful that they’re hunted for their meat and hides. But for a period of time, beginning in the early 1960s, Louisiana’s alligator population was in steep decline. Since then, Louisiana has instituted one of the world's most successful wildlife conservation projects to help ensure the alligator’s survival. Since 1985, some 300,000 gators have multiplied to nearly 3 million today.

Witness first-hand how this keystone species – and cultural icon – was brought back to viability using a combination of biological science and marketplace economics.
