Bayou Breakdown: The Incredible Urgency of Coastal Restoration

Coastal Louisiana is in crisis. Since the 1930s, the state has lost more than 2,000 square miles of land. Every 100 minutes, a football field of coastal land disappears into open water. That adds up to an area the size of Delaware being swallowed, in small and steady gulps, by the Gulf of Mexico. Can the state’s bold, $50 billion restoration plan save the residents, wildlife, industry, and billions of dollars in economic infrastructure? What can other coastal cities learn from the Mississippi River Delta? Underwritten by Walton Family Foundation.
