HELP SAVE COASTAL WETLANDS
The Louisiana Legislature is considering HCR1, a bill that will help coastal restoration efforts. Please write your Louisiana Senator and Representative, urging them to pass HCR1.
HCR 1 presents approval for the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority's (CPRA) 2016 Annual Plan that includes funding for 43 coastal projects including 18 protection projects, 24 restoration projects and 1 infrastructure project. These projects include restoration of dunes, beaches and wetlands along Cheniere Caminada and Shell Island, extension of the long-distance sediment pipeline and marsh creation at Grand Bayou in the Cameron-Creole Watershed.
