About the webinar
Join us for a free, one-hour live webinar focused on the design and implementation of a barrier island restoration in coastal Louisiana as part of Phase III of the Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) Early Restoration plan.
Ramboll experts Lawrence Malizzi and James Davis will provide an overview of the restoration of beach, dune and back-barrier marsh habitats to support breeding birds. The session will also share insights on how this project is compensating the public for spill-related losses to these resources, while also helping to enhance ecosystem resilience to environmental change along the coast.
A Q&A session will follow the program.
Restoring barrier island coast enhances ecosystem resilience
In the first project of its kind for the US Fish and Wildlife Service, more than 450 acres of habitat will be created at North Breton Island.Read more on how Ramboll is leading investigation, modeling and design services to facilitate restoration and rebuild the island.
