Did you know:
Since 1930, Louisiana has lost 1,900 square miles of wetlands. That is enough land to equal the size of Delaware.
The Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act is fighting land loss by utilizing several restoration techniques for land preservation and creation. Some of CWPPRA’s restoration techniques include:
- Barrier Islands
- Marsh Creation
- Shoreline Protection
- Hydrologic Restoration
- Freshwater and Sediment Diversions
