Think Again: Restoring and Protecting the Gulf Coast

Archived field trip now online:

Explore the value of the Gulf Coast region to the nation, how the fragile region is threatened, what is being done to restore lost land, and what you can do to help. A five minute introductory video prepares you to take part in the live field trip. Questions were submitted in advance and were answered during the live field trip.


The 20 minute electronic field trip (EFT) delved further into the problem of coastal land loss by exploring the quickly eroding Louisiana coastal region, restoration and protection techniques being implemented, and ways that you can help. A live 25 minute Q&A session with a panel of experts follows. Links to additional resources offer more detailed background information and suggested ways that you can help.

Intended Audience: middle and high school students and the general public.

Panel of Experts:

This electronic field trip and companion website have been made possible through funding provided by the Dauphin Island Sea Lab and the Gulf of Mexico Alliance.

Dauphin Island Sea Lab is Alabama’s marine science education and research laboratory which is located on the eastern tip of Dauphin Island, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico.

Louisiana Public Broadcasting and our partners bring you the best in educational field trips.

The Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA) is a collaborative effort of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas as well as six Mexican Gulf states to enhance the ecological and economic health of the Gulf of Mexico. Two action plans lay the foundation for the improved health of the coastal ecosystems and economies of the Gulf.
