According to the Louisiana Office of Coastal Protection and Restoration, they estimate:

"Louisiana boasts more than 4 million acres of wetlands, representing 40% of the nation’s total.  These wetlands are among the world’s most diverse and productive ecosystems."

There is not a date listed for this figure and I am seeing differing numbers on some sites. To find the most up to date information please contact the Coastal Activities Office at 342-7308 or the USGS National Wetlands Research Center at (337) 266-8500
