Coastal Protection & Restoration: State of Louisiana

The Coastal Protection & Restoration office provides material support and research on the wetlands and coastal areas of Louisiana. Their work includes a long-term master plan for protecting these unique resources, information on flood insurance, and materials for teachers. On their homepage, users will find links to Projects, Teacher Resources, Deepwater Horizon, and News. First-time visitors may wish to look over the Louisiana's Coastal Crisis area to get a sense of the grave problems faced by the state. The Teacher Resources area includes basic definitions of terms such as "coastline" and "shoreline," along with a creative rap about coastal erosion, and several presentations crafted by the agency. Additionally, the site's Library area contains the agency's annual plan and ten different coastal study reports, such as "Vegetation Response to Hurricane Rita in Southwestern Louisiana Marshes."
