Louisiana's coastline is being swallowed into the sea at an unprecedented pace. With som e of the highest rates of coastal erosion on the planet, more than a football field of land is lost every 100 minutes and over 2,000 square miles of coastline have already disappeared.
As erosion begins to drastically change Louisiana's wetlands while simultaneously exposing vulnerable oil pipelines, scientists fear that one of the greatest ecological and economic disasters in U.S. history could strike in the heart of Cajun country.
This in-progress project examines the cultural, ecological and economic impacts of land loss in coastal Louisiana communities and why despite it all, people still choose to live in the most at-risk areas.
