Delta Dispatches

Simone Maloz & Jacques Hebert c0-host the weekly radio show, “Delta Dispatches,” to discuss Louisiana’s coast, its people, wildlife and jobs, and why restoring it matters.

As the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) advances its draft 2017 Coastal Master Plan, the next few months will be critical in the fight to restore Louisiana’s coast. To keep you engaged and informed, we will bring you discussions on important aspects of coastal restoration, the latest coastal news and events, interviews with relevant experts, business and community leaders, and more.

 

As Executive Director of Restore or Retreat, a non-profit coastal advocacy group working to identify and expedite the implementation of aggressive, large-scale restoration projects, Terrebonne Parish native Simone Theriot Maloz works with Restore the Mississippi River Delta on the local, state and federal levels to advocate for the needs of the disappearing Louisiana coast, specifically the Barataria and Terrebonne Basins. Since the devastating hurricanes of 2005 and the 2010 oil spill, she has also been tracking the process of the different planning efforts underway, including the Natural Resources Damage Assessment Act (NRDA), Clean Water Act Penalties, the 2012 and 2017 State Master Plan Update and the Louisiana Coastal Area Study projects, all to ensure the needs of the Barataria and Terrebonne Basins are being adequately met with the necessary sense of urgency in the face of what is at stake. 

Jacques P. Hebert works as the National Audubon Society’s communications director for the Restore the Mississippi River Delta Coalition. In that capacity, Jacques helps raise awareness to Louisiana’s ongoing environmental land loss crisis, its implications on people, wildlife and the economy, and the restoration solutions available to address it. In the wake of the BP oil spill settlement, Jacques leverages public communications and outreach to build support for large-scale restoration efforts in Louisiana and across the Gulf Coast.
