About the Basin
Estimated at nearly 595,000 acres, the Atchafalaya Basin is the nation's largest swamp wilderness. It contains nationally significant expanses of bottomland hardwoods, swamplands, bayous, and back-water lakes. It is also home to 200 species of birds and many endangered species that include the Peregrine Falcon, Bachman's Warbler, and the Louisiana Black Bear. Also, we can't forget about one of the most prominent species in the swamp, the alligators.
