Louisiana is home to approximately 40% of all coastal wetlands in the United States. Sadly, the Bayou State is also where 90% of the nation's coastal wetlands disappear each year. In fact, every thirty minutes, Louisiana loses one acre of wetlands!
Cycle Construction recently completed a pilot project for the State of Louisiana to preserve our coastlines by building a "living shoreline" using concrete barriers and oysters. The combination of cement breakwaters and oyster reefs have helped combat wave erosion. Fox8 News recently highlighted the project.
