Water, promoter of all life forms on Earth, is recognized today- World Water Day! In Louisiana, 47% of the state’s population resides in the coastal zone, with majority of the livelihoods being reliant on water. Industries such as aquaculture, agriculture, and tourism depend on the sustainability and quality of Louisiana’s waters. This essential natural resource thrives in a symbiotic relationship with Louisiana’s wetlands, providing vital nourishment to fisheries, wildlife, and Louisiana’s coastal growth. Water is not only a commodity, but a contributor to life… appreciate it, preserve it, and protect it!
Water is the key to life, celebrate World Water Day!
