The Mississippi River Delta is one of America's greatest natural resources. Unfortunately, a football field of wetlands vanishes into open water every hour. There are solutions, but we need your help to implement them.
HOW CAN YOU HELP? TAKE ACTION TODAY:
Louisiana’s new governor, John Bel Edwards, has made strong commitments to restoring our state’s coastal wetlands and to ensuring coastal dollars are protected for coastal restoration and protection projects.
As governor, John Bel Edwards recently underscored his commitment by clearly signaling that coastal dollars will not be used to fill gaps in the state’s budget. The governor sent this strong message by stating that only non-coastal dollars from the BP settlement would be on the table. Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne and Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority Chair Johnny Bradberry have both echoed this position in recent public statements.
Join us in thanking Governor Edwards for his commitment to ensuring that coastal dollars go to building land and protecting communities, not to filling gaps in the state’s budget.
