Benefits of Wetlands

Did you know:

5 of the 15 largest ports in the United Stated are located in Louisiana

  1. Port of South Louisiana
  2. Port of New Orleans
  3. Port of Greater Baton Rouge
  4. Port of Plaquemines
  5. Port of Lake Charles

Louisiana’s coast provides an abundance of natural resources to the entire country; however, it is our coastal wetlands that hold the critical responsibility of providing storm protection to these ports and inland communities.
