Location

The swampy area makes seafood the most common delicacy in the area. Because the area is full of swamps and watery areas there are many houses on stilts. In Louisiana humans usually hunt alligators and fish, eventually the population of gators will be lowered due to these activities. After Mardi Gras there is a lot of streamers and decorations left over which end up building up piles of garbage in a trash heap destroying the environment.
