VOLUNTEER ONLINE: Land Loss Lookout

Land Loss Lookout is a citizen science project, in collaboration with SciStarter, so everyone’s work contributes to our in-depth understanding of the issue of coastal land loss. By looking out for our land, not only will observers gain valuable knowledge about wetlands and coastal land loss, but you’ll get to see some cool places in the Gulf, from a bird’s eye view!

Gulf Oysters

Gulf oyster and seafood production is down all across the region. Because oysters can’t move from harm’s way, they are a “canary in the coal mine” showing us the damage that years of pollution and poor water management have done to the Gulf Coast.

Rice’s Whale

The Gulf of Mexico’s newest whale is critically endangered. We must act quickly to keep this whale from going extinct.

One River, No Lake

communities across the nation are beginning to take down old dams, but the state of Mississippi is doing the opposite – it wants to impound the Pearl River.

Fracked Gas Buildout

There are 20+ proposed Fracked Gas LNG export terminals along the Gulf Coast. We cannot curb climate change in the U.S. without swift action to stop the fracked gas buildout in the Gulf.

Toxic Algae

Toxic algae outbreaks continue to plague waters across the Gulf. Learn why and what you can do to help.

Deep Sea Corals

The Gulf has a vast network of deep-sea corals. We need your help to protect them.

Louisiana Coast
