On Tuesday, October 6, 2014, Chuck Perrodin, the Public Information Director of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority spoke to our environmental communication class about Louisiana’s vanishing coastline.

Land loss of Louisiana’s coastline is caused by many different reasons, both natural and man-made.

The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority works to develop, implement, and enforce a comprehensive coastal protection and restoration Master Plan.

“In the last 80 years, Louisiana has lost 1,900 square miles of coastal land.”
Perrodin talked about how important Louisiana is because of our state’s contribution to the oil industry, seafood industry, unique wildlife, and important port locations.
He discussed different ways the CPRA’s Master Plan will work to conserve the coast and build up our natural defenses to extreme weather.
