Resilient Habitats

Elijah Wojohn

Elijah is part of the Resilient Habitats group and leading our efforts in Louisiana. He is focused on working with partners, stakeholders and farmers in Louisiana to help create habitat, primarily in the fall, for shorebirds that use agricultural land. He is also working on our broader efforts to build partnerships with the public, manage and grow the Louisiana Shorebird Alliance, and monitor the effectiveness of our work with expanding ISS volunteers.

Elijah grew up in Zachary, LA. Elijah enjoys family adventures in nature and is an avid conservationist, hunter, outdoorsman, and gardener. Elijah earned a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resource Ecology and Management with a concentration in Wildlife Ecology from LSU, and then completed a Graduate Certificate program at the University of Arkansas at Monticello in Waterfowl and Wetland Management. He’s passionate about using land management to advance conservation goals and has experience in agriculture and as a waterfowl manager/wildlife biologist. Elijah is currently living in Arkansas with his wife, daughter, two pups, and some chickens, but will be based in Louisiana where he’s originally from.
