Wednesday Why: It’s Important!

Louisiana’s coastline is not just important to its residents, it’s also important to the nation as a whole. Take into consideration what Coastal Louisiana provides for the nation as a whole:

  • $10-20 billion contributed annually to the U.S. treasury from domestic oil and natural gas production (2nd only to income tax)
  • Top producer of seafood in the continental U.S.
  • 5 of the nation’s 15 largest ports are in Louisiana

There are more than 2 million residents that consider coastal Louisiana home and plenty of other places rely on the Louisiana coast for it’s many services, cultures and residents.

That’s one important reason to save coastal Louisiana, but there are many more. What’s your reason for saving coastal Louisiana? Email your submission to: photoproject@bayougrace.org. Who knows, maybe your photo  influence someone else to do the same! And, don’t forget to check out the other submissions at Bayou Grace’s photo gallery.
