Lacassine National Wildlife Refuge is 35,000 acres of pristine wetlands located in southwest Louisiana. It is home to many species of birds, animals and plants and is a vital refuge to waterfowl during the fall and winter migrations.

My goal was to photograph the wildlife and land of this magical place through four seasons and share with others the essence of this ecosystem.

With the recent oil spill in the nearby Gulf of Mexico, I felt this book was a timely reminder of how precious and fragile our natural resources truly are.

If this helps open the eyes of just a few people to the fragility of our world then this project has been a success.

Your pics are great. We had (operative word HAD) a house on Galveston bay prior to Ike, and enjoyed the abundent wildlife that called the area home. So many creatures were lost because of the massive hurricane. It was a time of migration for many species of birds whose traditional path was across the Gulf of Mexico and many did not survive. In addition, their habitat was destroyed. Knowing that the coastal wildlife has not yet recovered from that assault, I was horrified when the BP "spill" (such a mild word for a catastrophe) occurred. I pray that the damage will not be as bad as I fear and that the "oil eating, oxygen using microbes" do their job without creating an even larger dead zone in the Gulf. I fervently hope that we have more than beautiful pictures left, but thanks to talented people like you, we will at least have those.
