The Mississippi River Delta is sinking at an alarming rate. To make informed decisions about the actions required to fix it, we need to understand how the delta was formed, its importance for both wildlife and people, as well as the causes of the precipitous land loss. This video produced by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology reviews these concepts while guiding us on a visually stunning journey through the under-appreciated Louisiana wetlands.
