Using Nature to Help Protect Grand Isle, Louisiana

| views

The people of Grand Isle, Louisiana feel a deep connection to life on the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately, Grand Isle is facing the challenge of keeping its land from eroding into the sea. Marsh is disappearing, the beach is eroding and sea level rise threatens the future. Restoring the natural coastal areas of Grand Isle - its oyster reefs and marsh lands — is at the center of solutions to help the community better protect itself from coastal erosion and storm surges, and maintain its way of life. Check out this short film created by The Nature Conservancy and film non--profit Students of the World.
