Protect Our Coast. Protect Their Future.
Louisiana is losing a football field of land every 100 minutes. Our coast is our critical first line of defense against storms, but this land loss crisis is putting the Gulf of Mexico at our doorstep. It puts our future—and our children’s future—at risk. But you can help.

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.
