The National WildBird Refuge
is in the process of raising $7.4 million to construct a world class bird Sanctuary.
Construction will be by phases over a five year period. If total funding was
available at the beginning of the project, more work could be done
simultaneously, thereby reducing the completion time. Project Swallow has
received tremendous support both from the local community and nationwide. NWR
has contributing members throughout the U.S. and Canada. Members contribute to
the operations of the organization. Board members contribute with their time,
money and expertise. Financial support has been received from a variety of
sources including the Audubon Society, the Chevron Companies, the Greater New
Orleans Foundation, Texaco, Inc., Freeport McMoRan, the Nature Society, the
Purple Martin Conservation Association, and Jefferson Parish.
