Louisiana loses a football field of land every hour from it’s coast, which is a huge problem for our nation. If this were happening in New York, Central Park would be gone in a month and Manhattan would disappear entirely after a year and a half. Gulf Restoration Network is an advocacy and watchdog group on the ground, fighting to protect and restore this vital coast.
Do you like a morning cup of coffee? The Gulf coast is a crucial driver of the nation’s economy; generating hundreds of millions of dollars each year through trade in goods like coffee, grains, seafood, and oil & gas.
Like seafood? 25% of the nation’s commercial fish and shellfish come from Louisiana’s coast.
Like music? Louisiana is where jazz, blues, and bounce rule and the musical history here goes deep, not to mention second lines and brass bands.
GULF RESTORATION NETWORK unites and empowers people to protect and restore the Gulf of Mexico. By halting destructive development, training citizen activists and watch dogging big industry, Gulf Restoration Network works to ensure a healthy Gulf for generations to come.
