Alligators (and their cousins the Crocodilians) are o’ the original water dragons – revered for their wisdom, dominance and perseverance. They have been here since long before humans as an integral part o’ the ecosystem.

 NOLA Pyrate Week is honouring our Louisiana “Dragons” by officially declaring 2012 as “Year O’ The Gator” – raising funds and awareness for wetlands preservation & restoration – something we termed our “WGL Initiative” (Wetlands, Gators, Louisiana) – important because without the wetlands and all who thrive and survive in them, nothing else would exist!

We are also planning our annual trip to Da Bayou in conjunction with a wetlands cleanup event – we hope ye will join us!
