Restoring Wetlands on 'America's Coast'

The Gulf of Mexico relies on a healthy coast. Today, people and communities are uniting to protect the region’s environment and economy

Wetlands are vital to recreation, business and wildlife in Louisiana. Right now, we have the best opportunity in generations to secure the health of our coast and its economy for good. That's why we're working develop large-scale projects that restore wetlands, barrier islands, oyster reefs and other natural systems.

Restoring the Louisiana Coast
The Gulf of Mexico relies on a healthy coast, but wetlands are disappearing. The land is vital to recreation, business and wildlife in Louisiana. Right now, we have the best opportunity in generations to secure the health of our coast and its economy for good. We’re working to develop large-scale projects that restore wetlands, barrier islands, oyster reefs and other natural systems.

People Make the Difference
“We often get asked if these issues related to coastal land loss are fixable or solvable. The answer is yes."
Erik Johnson, director of bird conservation for Audubon Louisiana.
We’re facing a land-loss crisis ... We need to have a sense of urgency and to advocate for the resources to help protect Louisiana's coast.
Happy Johnson, New Orleans resident.
