Life in Fourchon Parrish, Louisiana is good. Abundant shrimp, crabs, oysters, and access to the Gulf of Mexico make this an attractive place to live and work. But increasingly, life on the coast introduces difficult challenges. Building levees and re-engineering drainage systems are some of the near-term ways people are adapting to a changing landscape. But will they, too, retreat inland, leaving the coast to time and tides?
