Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation Updated:12/2022

Headquartered in Baton Rouge, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation’s (LAWFF) mission is to enhance and encourage public enjoyment and use of the wildlife and fisheries resources in this state. With this mission, we promote, develop, and expand the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) in youth recruitment, environmental education and training, and habitat conservation.

Upon its creation in December 1995, it was envisioned as a Foundation that would promote the welfare of LDWF, reflecting the belief that there was more to accomplish than governmental resources could cover. The proposed Foundation would support department education and research programs with additional resources developed through its own facilities. The concept of a Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation was put to the test when Secretary Herring and a small group of sportsmen and conservationists met to discuss and develop a means for individuals and corporations to partner with LDWF. Don Puckett, former LDWF general counsel, drafted Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws, and after a few revisions, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation was born. On December 14, 1995, the Articles of Incorporation were signed by six incorporators: John Campbell, Jr., a Baton Rouge attorney, Glynn Carver, a Many businessman (then a Wildlife and Fisheries Commission member), Marc Dupuy, Jr., a Marksville attorney, Jim Hall, a Ruston banker, John Jackson, III, a Metairie attorney and Cliff Penick, a Slidell contractor.
