A Note from the Regional Director
As spring approaches, we find much to celebrate in NWF's South Central Region. The imperiled monarch butterfly has caught the attention of everyone from first graders in Houston to big city mayors in San Antonio, Oklahoma City, and Kansas City. Young NWF Earth Tomorrow leaders in Atlanta have helped renew and revive a 26-acre urban forest, and sportsmen groups in Louisiana welcomed their new governor with a letter advocating for restoration of Louisiana's deteriorating coast.

Of course many challenges remain, including sediment loss in the Mississippi River Delta and ongoing impacts to wildlife and the Gulf ecosystem from the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill. We are proud of our efforts to protect wildlife across the region and grateful to all our supporters for helping us stand up for wildlife.
