Tell Your Legislators: Vote Yes on the Coastal Master Plan

Without action, Louisiana could lose 2,250 square miles of land over the next 50 years, putting our communities, economy, natural resources and wildlife – our entire way of life – at risk. If implemented, the master plan will help Louisiana avoid this worst-case scenario and reduce damages, which could exceed $150 billion over the next 50 years without the master plan.

Tell Louisiana Legislators: Vote Yes on the Coastal Master Plan.

The Very Rev. William " Bill" Terry - Restore the Mississippi River Delta

The Very Rev. William “Bill” Terry

Rector of St. Anna’s Episcopal Church, New Orleans, LA.
How I got involved:

I became interested in the work of Restore the Mississippi River Delta when I was offered an opportunity to highlight their work during a Sunday Service that focused on nature. Since then I have been impressed with the educational and advocacy work done by the Coalition in working to save our coastline and wetlands.

Why I love Louisiana:

I am a native of Louisiana and spent my childhood raised on the water along the Gulf coastal marshlands. Later in life I was involved with the Gulf Coast fisheries industry. The richness of this Louisiana and her coastal lands, waters, villages and reefs are part of who I am and how I know the world. To see harm done to any of it is like harm is being done to my family. I want my grandchildren and their grandchildren to at least retain what is and if possible restore some of what was. I love Louisiana.
