The Entrepreneur

Lindsay Pick was the producer and writer for a PBS television series that focused on coastal land loss in Louisiana. She received a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of New Orleans program, where she focused on issues of flood protection and coastal restoration. Lindsay believes the survival of our communities is dependent upon public interest and involvement in the restoration of our wetlands.

Marie Gould has spent more than 25 years boating and kayaking in the Louisiana wetlands. She is an environmentalist with a long career in education, who also served as a seasonal forest ranger for nine years. She ran a program that brought New Orleans children to the Colorado wilderness and rafting the Grand Canyon.

The Opportunity/Challenge

Since the 1930s, half of Louisiana’s coastal wetlands (about 2,000 sq. miles) have been lost. Louisiana is still losing that precious habitat at the rate of 12 to 16 square miles each year, putting an entire region at risk.
