Since the 1930s, at least 1900 square miles of our beautiful coastal home has been lost to the sea. What took nature 7000 years to build, man has nearly destroyed in less than one hundred. Let’s work together to turn the tide again and create a healthy, sustainable, and beautiful Gulf Coast for all Americans.

Beasts of the Southern Wild at a theater near us!
We’re thrilled to announce that the beautiful film Beasts of the Southern Wild will be playing in Houma beginning this weekend. Showtimes and ticket information for the movie can be found here. Filmed in the 5 bayous, this film is a must see for anyone and everyone who loves coastal Louisiana. There will also be a special question and answer session with some of the cast and crew after the evening Sunday showings on Sunday, July 29 after 5:10 and 7:45 PM showings at the AMC Palace Theater in Houma.
Beasts of the Southern Wild was filmed right here in Terrebonne Parish. The lead actress is homegrown Quvenzhane Wallis (who was 6 at the time of filming) who was called “a force of nature” by Roger Ebert. It is one of the best reviewed movies of the year and has already won top prizes at the Sundance Film Festival and at Cannes.
