Land Loss

Did you know:

Coastal Louisiana has lost an average of 34 square miles of land per year for the last 50 years.

The alarming rate at which Louisiana loses coastal land can be seen through projected land loss maps such as the Southeast Louisiana Land Loss Map, which shows historical and projected land loss in the state’s deltaic plain from 1932 to 2050. The Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act works diligently to decrease the rate of land loss for coastal regions along the Gulf of Mexico.
