Welcome to the Mobile Tensaw River Delta

Enormous. Majestic. An ecological wonderland. The most biodiverse body of water in the world. Rich in animal and vegetative species, the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta is all these things and more, including home to more than 600 species of fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds. With habitats that include huge swaths of swamps, marshes and wetlands, it is a veritable maze of tributary creeks, rivers, streams and bayous. The Delta is home to humans as well, who can access its wonders on foot or by airboats, fishing boats, canoes and kayaks. On this website, we will introduce you to America’s second-largest delta, to the wildlife creatures who inhabit it and to some of the people who live, work and play in it every day. We invite you to join us on a virtual journey through the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta – all 260,000 acres of it – and then to discover it in person. Bon voyage.
