When I began writing Bayou-Diversity programs more than 20 years ago, there was little talk of conservation issues in this region unless they threatened or enhanced hunting and fishing opportunities.  Especially as our population becomes more urban and insulated from the natural world, there seemed to be a need to provide basic information about native flora and fauna.  Even more important is the necessity to educate folks of matters that threaten our local ecosystems and often times us in the process.
