Wednesday Why: For the World!

9 11 Wed Why

This is yet another reminder of Louisiana’s contribution to the nation and the world.  No, we’re not an island.  We are a people, an environment and industries that reach far beyond our coast.

Wednesday Why: For Our Children

Sept 4 Wed WhyThank you Charlotte, from Gibson, LA, for reminding us that saving coastal Louisiana means saving our lives, livelihoods, communities, and much, much more for our children and generations to come.

Where we live, work and play is part of our identity. Sustaining our homes and our culture is dependent on saving our coast. Let’s preserve this beautiful way of life so that future generations can appreciate and understand how precious coastal Louisiana is!

Wednesday Why: Sustaining our Rural Communities

Wed. Why sustainable rural communities

We couldn’t agree more!  With restored and protected rural communities in coastal Louisiana, families will spend less time and resources, already limited commodities, on rebuilding their homes after hurricanes and be able to focus  more time building their livelihoods.

Wednesday Why: Because Our Birds Need Something to Land On

Wed. Why Birds

Millions of birds spend part or all of their life cycle in south Louisiana. Our barrier islands, headland beaches, forested wetlands and upland forests provide critical shelter and food sources for migratory birds, many of which are rare, threatened and endangered species.  Saving Coastal Louisiana isn’t just for the birds, either.  There are more than 2 million residents that consider Coastal Louisiana home and plenty of other places rely on the Louisiana coast for all that we provide to the nation.  

We must save Coastal Louisiana for the birds, for the people, for the irreplaceable culture and heritage and for the countless reasons too numerous to list here.   

Please add your voice to the hundreds of others who’ve added their voice to this project, by answering the question, “Why should we save coastal Louisiana?” Send your submission to photoproject@bayougrace.org today.

Wednesday Why: Savor the Flavor

Wed. Why Savor the Flavor

C’est Bon!  Protecting and restoring coastal Louisiana means protecting our rich heritage that has brought so many cultures, and their food traditions, together.

How can you help save coastal Louisiana and our traditions that so many around the world enjoy?  Educate others by sending us your why at  photoproject@bayougrace.org.

Wednesday Why: Pay It Forward

Paying it forward

Need we say more? The thought of a world in which there is no south Louisiana to hand down to the next generation is a sad thought indeed. As the saying goes, we do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. Let’s make sure we can honor this sentiment.

Wednesday Why: For Ms. Effie and All Our Wonderful Community Leaders

Wed. Why Miss Effie

For any of you who know Ms. Effie, you know that she and so many others are committed to giving back to their communities and improving the quality of life for everyone.  But, she can’t do it alone!  We need the help and support of the nation to make sure we have a stable environment, our foundation, to get out and do good work on!
