Wildlife Violations

wildlife-and-fisheriesIt is the mission of the District Attorney’s Office to support and conserve our natural resources by prosecuting those who do not respect and value Louisiana’s Wildlife & Fisheries’ laws.

Plaquemines Parish is located in Region 8, District B and we are one of the top three coastal parishes in citations issued for wildlife and fish violations. The District Attorney’s office is committed to enforcing and prosecuting these laws, as well as educating the public about the importance of conservation.

Education takes place for first time offenders through our diversion program. It is important for the public to know that fish and wildlife are renewable resources, therefore their protection by prosecution of violations is essential in Wildlife & Fisheries survival.
