Over the last several months, we’ve been hard at work tidying and sprucing up our website to provide you with a more visual, engaging and clear resource to learn about the importance of the Mississippi River Delta and the work our organizations are doing to help restore it.

In tackling the redesign, our goal was to showcase the current land loss crisis facing our state, the solutions available to address it and provide you with options for how you can get involved. We also wanted to make sometimes complex, scientific information easier to find and understand, showcase the beauty of the Mississippi River Delta visually, and create an experience that would look great on all devices. In addition to a more visual and streamlined experience, the site is now compatible with modern tablets and smart phones to allow you to keep in touch while on the move.

Go ahead, pull back the curtain here.

Among the many new additions and updates to our site, we wanted to take a few minutes to highlight some of our favorites:

Meet Our Staff

Meet the passionate staff of Restore the Mississippi River Delta! Our coalition, which consists of five organizations – the Environmental Defense Fund, the National Wildlife Federation, National Audubon Society, Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana and Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation – includes staff working across science, policy, outreach and community engagement, and communications. Each profile is listed proudly with blog posts, policy papers, social media profiles and more, so you can get to know our team!

Priority Projects

Our Coalition outlined 19 priority restoration projects in the Mississippi River Delta that, if underway in the next five years, can signal the beginning of an era of stewardship and healthy recovery for not just the delta, but for the entire Gulf Coast. Our new interactive map allows you to navigate through each of our priority projects by type, basin and location. With up-to-date information on each, they’ll act as a live hub featuring project factsheets, current status, photos and more.
