    This project will benefit bird species affected by the Macondo oil spill by protecting and enhancing critical habitats required by these species for breeding, foraging, and brood rearing. MHHC will perpetually protect 275 acres of wetlands and 275 acres of mixed grassland and forest through the purchase of conservation easements. An additional 120 acres of wetland habitat will be secured for a minimum of 10 years through voluntary agreements. These medium-term securements will be enhanced through the installation of 120 hen houses, thereby increasing waterfowl nesting success and brood survival.
