Environment

Southern Louisiana comprises one of the largest and most diverse wetlands in North America. The region produces 25% of the nation’s seafood and provides habitat for 10 million birds. Research at the ByWater Institute seeks to better understand the processes that drive environmental change and best practices for communicating academic work in impactful ways to all stakeholders.
