The Louisiana Coast: Last Call
Rising sea levels threaten communities on every American coastline, but none more so than Louisiana’s Gulf Coast, where every hour a football field’s worth of marsh disappears.
As the magnitude of global sea level rise has become better understood, coastal land loss has become an urgent concern, with scientists and public officials pondering what land can be protected or rebuilt that the rising Gulf will not wash away. We will hear from leading scientists, historians, public officials, fishermen and other stakeholders in the battle to save as much of the Southeast Louisiana coast as possible.
Support for The Louisiana Coast: Last Call comes from the Greater New Orleans Foundation, an organization that addresses the challenges facing people who live and work in the coastal communities of Southeast Louisiana.
