Eagle Habitat Restoration The Mississippi River, the third largest river in the world, is home to approximately 241 Fish Species, 50 Mammal Species, 45 Reptile and Amphibian Species, 37 Species of Mussels, and 60% of the Nation’s Migratory Birds occupy the Mississippi Flyway. More than 14 million ducks pass over this flood plain twice annually.

In order for our river ecosystem to function properly, it is essential that riparian lands remain natural and floodable.
