Floating Island Project - Phase II

 

Friday-Saturday, April 19-20th • 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Boat Launch at Isle de Jean Charles

 

CCA's Building Conservation Habitat Program, in partnership with Shell Oil Company, Terrebonne Parish Government, Terrebonne Parish Schools and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries join together again to help rebuild the coastline in Terrebonne Parish with Phase II of the Floating Islands Restoration Project.


What is it?
This project will create 1,000 to 1,500 ft. more floating islands. The first floating island restoration technology was used in the fall of 2011 and have withstood the week-long beating that Hurricane Isaac put on the Louisiana coast in the fall of 2012. The island mats will once again be made from recycled plastics and will have 80 or more plants.


How Does it Work?
The mats, planted with native species, will grow a root system to the water bottom, trap sediments and grow toward and tie into the disappearing marsh. It will strengthen and flourish into a sustainable mass. It will also serve as a fish habitat. For more information on floating island restoration, click here.
