As part of NWF's continued coverage of the Gulf oil spill we visit a jewel on the coast. Visit http://bit.ly/14Dcyfz to learn more about our work.
In 2002, the Louisiana Wildlife Federation (LWF) embarked on a campaign to restore public access to Elmer's Island, a barrier beachfront and wetland complex located across Caminada Pass from Grand Isle, LA. Persistence paid off when, seven years later, LWF celebrated the reopening of the island to the public. Now, as giant globs of oil from the BP oil spill wash up on Elmer's shore, that hard won success has become bittersweet.
