Why we should care about Louisiana's Coastal wetlands

David Richard, Vice President of Stream Property Management, Inc. 


Why should anybody care? The whole world should care about the richness and diversity of Louisiana's Coastal Wetlands. Louisiana's Coastal Wetlands comprise the richest coastal wetlands in North America.  As the termination of the largest river and the largest delta in North America. The diversity of wildlife and fisheries and culture is unsurpassed anywhere in the country. The fisheries productivity, the mineral productivity, the wildlife productivity is unparalleled in this country; and the preservation of the wetland diversity that supports this productivity is a cornerstone and should be a corner stone of our society of our United States.

Our Louisiana Coast is a working coast and working wetland and has been for over 300 years. People have made their living off the land for generations.  We need your help to save our coast. 

“Our vision is to be the regional, unifying voice of the people of Calcasieu, Cameron, and Vermilion Parishes that champions coastal restoration and protection of a diverse ecosystem, a region of vital economic importance, and culturally rich heritage, the Louisiana Chenier Plain.”
