Coastal Erosion 06.jpg

Barrier island in Barrataria Bay in Plaquimens Parish, Louisiana faces coastal erosion as the tide rises. The barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico are threaten by coastal erosion that was sped up since the BP oil spill which killed the grass and mangrove trees which hold the islands together. Plaquimens Parish started it's own coastal restoration projecta for island with bird rookeries on them ahead of the Restore the Coast Act for fear there would be too little of the island left to save.
