From Gulf Restoration Network:

WLAE-TV, a New Orleans PBS Affiliate, is proud to announce the launch of its new coastal restoration program, Category Five/Wetlands Watch. The show is an in-depth exploration into the dire state of Louisiana’s coastal wetlands, the economic impact of its continued destruction, and the possible solutions that could save Louisiana.

The program will run for six months and aims to paint a large-scale portrait on the condition of Louisiana’s wetlands. The program will provide viewers with the essential knowledge needed to understand how Louisiana’s coast was formed and how it was eaten away. Subsequent episodes will explore the economic vitality of Louisiana’s wetlands to the fishing, oil and shipping industries and how its deterioration effects all of America. The series will conclude with an analysis of the various solutions proposed to slow the coast’s erosion and to rebuild America’s wetlands.
