Cajun culture is vanishing in South Louisiana due to a coastal crisis - “Water’s Edge” (Part 5)

09:48

For communities that have survived Hurricane Katrina, the BP oil spill and now, the mounting flood risk due to sediment diversions, the populations throughout bayous have dwindled. But those who remain are hopeful that these restorations projects will restore their land without harming fisheries and their way of life.
