Is It 'Last Call' For Louisiana's Coast?
Join WWNO — New Orleans Public Radio and Bob Marshall, The Lens’ Coastal Desk reporter, on Wednesday, May 22, for an in-depth discussion of coastal issues discussed in our new series The Louisiana Coast: Last Call.
The series reveals this sobering consensus from coastal scientists and state officials: If the master plan for the coast isn’t completed over the next 40 years, most of southeast Louisiana will be under water before the end of the century.
Join Bob as he moderates a panel discussion of experts to see if they agree and take your questions on this vital issue: David Muth, head of the National Wildlife Federation’s Louisiana Coastal Project; Anne Rolfes, founder of Louisiana Bucket Brigade, Kerry St. Pé, head of the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program and Aaron Viles, deputy director at the Gulf Restoration Network.
