See the Swamp with New Orleans Airboat Tours

October 30, 2015

The Louisiana swamp is an unusual ecosystem brimming with unique wildlife. Cypress trees line the coastal deltas of Louisiana and shelter the animals below. These swamps are home to many species of fish, snapping turtles, whitetail deer, corn snakes, nutria, and alligators. Wading birds like the pelican, great blue heron, egret, hawks, and owls live among these animals here in the wetlands. The Louisiana swamp makes up over ten percent of the nation’s wetlands and is an important food source globally. The wet, subtropical climate of Louisiana allows plants like water lilies, cattails, marsh grass, and majestic cypress and tupelo trees to flourish almost year-round.

Because of the geographic position of these swamplands, they are unlike any other in the world. The best way to experience and explore this awe-inspiring landscape is to take a trip and see it firsthand.
