Monitoring the CWCS in Louisiana will begin with the employment of existing inventories and surveys, which includes any monitoring done by conservation partners. Monitoring will continue with surveys, remote sensing, satellite imagery, disease
and movement monitoring, breeding site survey sampling, DNA and net sampling, herpetological web site, predictive modeling, ground truthing and taxonomic affinities an reclassification. Population, habitat and project-level monitoring are also included in the Louisiana CWCS as well as distribution information, length frequency distributions; community-level monitoring and replication. These performance measures provide information that pertains to conservation actions and provide for revisions to these actions if needed. The conservation action and proposed plans
for GCN species and habitat monitoring occurs with help from several partners. These partners include but are not limited to Louisiana State University, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, United States Geological Survey, Smurfit-Stone, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Louisiana Audubon Council, Louisiana Department of Natural Resources, University of Louisiana, Tulane University, Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program, United Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Park Service. The Louisiana Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy is scheduled for reviews and revision in 5-year intervals. The purpose of this is for this reviewing the conservation status of the GCN species and to revise the list if necessary, to determine if modification is necessary. Mississippi wildlife along the rivers can be natural, common or even rare and unique. The water areas not only support such common and unique wildlife but varieties of vegetation are supported as well. The areas along the river and the river itself support a great variety of plants and wildlife because there is an abundance of natural cover, a good amount of isolation, and food.
