Louisiana wetlands are disappearing at an alarming rate—every 38 minutes, we lose the equivalent of a football field. When the wetlands vanish so do our animals, our industry and our natural storm protection.

What is a Louisiana Wetland?

In Louisiana, marshes and swamps make up most of our wetlands. The Louisiana wetlands are not only beautiful but functional as they reduce storm damage and coastal erosion, and also provide one of the most productive ecosystems on earth.
