The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) unveiled a new logo at the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission meeting on July 8. 

The new logo is an updated and simpler version that represents most of the vast Louisiana outdoor landscape.  The logo design includes silhouettes of three major species managed by LDWF: deer, waterfowl and fish.  The coastline in the background is the outline of Vermilion Bay and cypress trees fill in the horizon set against a Louisiana bright blue sky.

"The old logo served us well through many generations," said LDWF Secretary Robert Barham.  "The new logo is a bold symbol of the conservation mission we are responsible for overseeing."

LDWF will be using the new logo on all future projects, publications, programs, signage, trucks and other department objects.  The old LDWF will be slowly phased out as equipment and publications are replaced and reprinted. 

LDWF's Public Information Office researched and designed the new logo with input from local graphic artists, marketing firms and LDWF employees.
