This project involves the restoration of beach, dune, and back-barrier marsh habitats, as well as habitat for brown pelicans, terns, skimmers, and gulls at four barrier island locations in Louisiana: Chenier Ronquille, Shell Island, North Breton Island, and Caillou Lake Headlands (also known as Whiskey Island on Isle Dernieres State Refuge). The State of Louisiana, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Department of the Interior (DOI) are working cooperatively on this project. Construction is complete on Chenier Ronquille, Shell Island, and Calliou Lake Headlands. Breton Island is currently in the implementation phase.
