Coastal issues affect us all and it is important that we all have a good working knowledge of the issues.
Here are some great resources to help you stay on top of what’s going on. (Please note, these resources are posted here as a reference only. The positions and programs of these resources are those of the listed organizations only.)
Also known by its acronym, CPRA, this Louisiana state agency has the daunting role of managing a mixed bag of federally and state funded projects that either directly are restoring Louisiana’s fragile coastlines or contribute to that restoration in some way. Learn more at http://coastal.la.gov/
According to the organization’s website, this non-profit group’s focus is, “to drive bold, science-based action to rebuild Coastal Louisiana through outreach, restoration and advocacy.” More information is online at http://www.crcl.org.
The group offers a science and research-based approach to restoring the Mississippi River delta which is another way of saying restoring a large segment of Louisiana’s coastline. Although the river delta is slightly east of Rotary District 6200, initiatives like these remain important to the entire coastline.
