Coastal Erosion 04.jpg

A flooded bird's nest in marsh grass on a barrier island in Barrataria Bay in Plaquimens Parish, Louisian, vunerable to the rising tides. 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 project for Cat Island, a bird rookery for the pelican ahead of the Restore the Coast act for fear their would be too little of the island left to save.
