ROR Visits Caminada with CPRA and Parish Leaders
The second increment of Caminada, totaling nearly $150 million, will begin this spring.

New sand fencing successfully captures sand along the project footprint.
Restore or Retreat took over 20 leaders from CPRA, Lafourche Parish, Port Fourchon, and fellow NGOs to visit the Caminada project site this month.  The purpose of the field trip was to view the State's successful completion of the first increment of Caminada and to view the upcoming project area for the second increment.

Increment I was completed this winter, and totaled over $70 million, including funding from the Coastal Impact Assistance Program and State surplus dollars.  This work also completed a multi-million dollar project by Port Fourchon using geo-tubes in the project area, and a $40 million West Belle Pass Headland CWPPRA project. In total, nearly $260 million in restoration has occurred along Lafourche's shoreline, signaling its important in protecting both Port Fourchon and the citizens of Lafourche.

ROR opposes President's GOMESA proposal and coastal cuts

Restore or Retreat recently sent letters to the Louisiana Congressional delegation, expressing our disappointment at the President's suggestion that off-shore revenue dollars secured for Louisiana's coast be shared with the entire nation and to express our support for their efforts to stop future attempts to reallocate the funds.

ROR also signed onto a GNO Inc. letters expressing support to fully fund coastal activities.  Due to overwhelming support, it looks like no coastal cuts will occur this year.  ROR will be sure to keep you posted on any future developments.

We are grateful for our supporters who allow us to continue working daily on saving this irreplaceable region!
