The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana is a non-profit organization dedicated to the stewardship of coastal Louisiana. The Coalition represents the participation of many different interests from among business, local government, scientists and concerned citizens from the conservation and religious communities. For more than 13 years, the Coalition has been a source for new ideas and a catalyst for change.
The Coalition publishes a newsletter, CoastWise, to inform its members, maintains a speakers bureau, and sponsors programs to educate Louisiana about saving our coastal wetlands.
The goal of the Coalition is to reverse the pattern of net land loss in coastal Louisiana and to re-establish sustainable balance to its geologic processes and communities. To do this, we must go beyond advocating for stringent regulations and enforcement policies. We must push for actual restoration activity and for changes in the ways people approach development in the Mississippi River corridor and the coastal area. This focus makes the Coalition distinctly different from any other civic or environmental group in the region and possibly in the nation.
