  • Vanishing Paradise : News & Updates : Is There Hope For The Coast?
    were mostly fascinated with the incredible bird life Throughout the morning teal and grey ducks by the thousands took flight from the expanses of shallow ponds and mudflats especially when Bald Eagles would swoop low to pick out a straggler The fall s first mallards methodically chose landing spots joined by small groups of wigeon and pintail And wading birds dotted the shoreline picking off shrimp mullet and pogies that ventured too close to the sandbars There were thousands and thousands of ducks there Ducks like I used to see in the wetlands between Chauvin and Montegut 25 years ago before all of that marsh was torn apart by saltwater intrusion and hurricane storm surges I became so preoccupied with trying to figure out the best spot to brush a boat blind I forgot I was supposed to be explaining what we were seeing to our guests As if the ducks buzzing overhead weren t enough to draw attention from time to time I noticed the telltale swirl of tailing redfish pushing mullet against the newly formed sand bars I also couldn t help but see groups of six or eight gulls diving over schools of shrimp and pogies in the green brackish waters between the sand bars Surely there were speckled trout in these waters too In February when I returned to the Wax Lake Delta the same channels that had saltwater fish in them in October now churned with brown sediment laden freshwater coursing its way into the bay The ducks were still filling the sky The Bald Eagles still soared and swooped And a couple thousand geese stood on what seemed like the very last spit of mud on the delta framed by large oil rigs silhouetted against the misty sky less than a mile away Had

  • Vanishing Paradise : News & Updates : BP Settlement Needs To Include Accountability, Restoration
    must ensure that penalty dollars come back to restore the region that was harmed by the disaster Photo by Yuki Kokubo http www yukikokubo com The gulf oil spill is the largest offshore oil disaster in history The clean up and restoration will continue for decades and the full scale of damage won t be known for years To this day oil persists in the environment and continues to wash ashore The clean up and recovery must not be shortchanged Furthermore the fines and penalties must go toward restoring the region that was harmed by the disaster rather than being diverted to unrelated federal spending The RESTORE Act currently under consideration in the Senate lays out a framework for restoration of the gulf We support that legislation and urge those considering settlement to draw on the RESTORE Act for guidance An overwhelming majority of American voters more than 80 percent expect BP s fines to be used to restore areas damaged in the disaster It s a matter of simple fairness that unites voters of every political persuasion from all across the country And voters understand the importance of the gulf to U S energy independence to commercial fishing to wildlife to tourism and to jobs Any settlement deal must hold polluters accountable and direct dollars toward restoration Anything less means that taxpayers will be making up the difference for years And that s simply unacceptable Related resources Settle the BP Oil Spill Litigation Maybe But Let s Not Let BP Shortchange the Gulf Yet Again National Wildlife Federation s Wildlife Promise blog A slightly different version of this article originally appeared on the Delta Dispatches blog on the Restore the Mississippi River Delta website newer older Search Join VP on Recent Blogs 04 27 16 The Bonnet Carré Provides

  • Vanishing Paradise : Articles : One Step Forward For Gulf Restoration
    for the Gulf oil disaster accountable for restoring the region that was damaged Using the Gulf oil spill penalties to restore the Gulf region s communities environment and economy is the fair and right thing to do Passing the RESTORE Act out of the EPW Committee by a voice vote shows the bipartisan support this issue commands NWF s Senior Manager for Sportsmen Leadership Land Tawney said The Mississippi River Delta is a national treasure that deserves to be made whole from the impacts of the largest oil spill this country has ever seen We must carry the momentum out of the committee and take it to the full Senate and House in a timely fashion The chorus of ducks quacking and redfish tailing has started but we must follow through to ensure our children can enjoy this phenomenal resource into the future The bill still faces a long road before it becomes law We re looking forward to seeing a similar bill in the House soon and to working with our Senate champions to get this through the full Senate Stay tuned newer older Search Join VP on Recent Blogs 04 27 16 The Bonnet Carré Provides Plenty of

    bipartisan legislation and we look forward to working with them to improve and pass a bill that will make this national treasure whole again Nine Gulf senators have introduced a similar bill in the Senate the RESTORE Gulf Coast States Act S 1400 which passed through the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee last month The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force a key federal and state panel convened by the White House has also released its draft report calling for a significant new commitment to restore the vital resources of the Gulf Coast The report also urged the dedication of oil spill penalties to the environmental and economic restoration of the Gulf which is what the bills in both the House and Senate would accomplish We praise the Task Force s report calling for swift and far reaching action to restore the Gulf Coast Tawney continued The draft report highlights key issues that demand immediate attention to make restoration a reality Sportsmen and women across the country are standing with Vanishing Paradise hoping the final report outlines specific steps that can be taken in the near term to ensure the restoration of one of our nation s most phenomenal resources Recognizing the urgent need to translate words into action we hope the final report will include specific steps that can be taken without delay to address the most pressing needs in the Gulf The coastal wetlands surrounding the Mississippi River Delta provide crucial wildlife habitat that help Louisiana live up to its nickname as a Sportsman s Paradise The delta provides a winter or stopover ground for 10 million migratory waterfowl each year which accounts for up to 70 of the ducks and geese using the Mississippi and Central flyways The delta also supports world class salt and freshwater
