The wood duck’s revival from the brink of extinction sparkles in Armand Bayou’s magical forest full of hope and beauty.

πŸ¦†βœ¨ Did you know? The wood duck, once nearly extinct, has made an incredible comeback thanks to conservation efforts! 🌿🌳In the early 1900s, habitat loss and over-hunting pushed wood ducks to the brink. But with the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 providing crucial protection, their populations began to recover. Today, these stunning birds continue to captivate waterfowlers, birders, and biologists alike with their vibrant plumage and graceful presence. Let’s celebrate the resilience of the wood duck and the dedication of conservationists who ensure their future remains bright. Photo taken on Armand Bayou courtesy of Gary Seloff
