Still the Wetlands

Although Brad Pitt and his amazing MIR team and affiliates are doing fantastic things in the Lower Ninth Ward, there is still another great, underlying challenge facing not only New Orleans, but all of Louisiana, and that is the restoration of the wetlands. Without the natural protection of the wetlands against storm surges, hurricanes will continue to do far more damage than they should. Everybody down in the Ward knows this, and that is why they are keen to see the nearby Cypress Triangle replenished, replanted and nourished back to full health. Malik Rahim and Common Ground Relief are working on this and the Army Corps of Engineers has put it high on its list of projects under consideration for full funding, under the title "Bayou Bienvenue Restoration Project". We should all encourage the Corps to go for it.

Dieu bénisse le Lower Ward neuvième et la restauration des zones humides.
