Top Restoration Projects for Restoring our Coast
The rate of land loss in Louisiana is immense: more than an acre of land disappears into open water every hour. Fortunately, the state of Louisiana is uniquely positioned to address this problem.
In 2012, the state passed a landmark plan for a revived coast and a secure future called the Louisiana 2012 Coastal Master Plan. In this plan, the state selected 109 high-performing projects that could substantially increase flood protection for communities and create a sustainable coast.
Our campaign has reviewed all project concepts in the Coastal Master Plan. Using our expertise in Louisiana’s coastal issues and restoration science, we have selected 19 projects that represent the most promising near-term solutions for restoring Louisiana’s coast.
