Take a look at this visual record of the state’s natural resources and history. Louisiana Ecology and Conservation: the Percy Viosca Jr. Collection is a collection of images by one of Louisiana’s most acclaimed biologists and conservationists. The images presented in the digital library offer a range of subjects such as documentation of his biological science and conservation work, the Mississippi River flood of 1927, and images of his work with the Boy Scouts of America.

The collection includes more than 1,100 images by Percy Viosca. These images were scanned by the staff of Hill Memorial Library after being salvaged by Louisiana Sea Grant and the LSU AgCenter Extension. For more information about this project and the work of Percy Viosca, Jr., visit the project website. To view the collection, visit the LOUISiana Digital Library.
