Thousands of acres of roseau cane marsh have died or turned to open water in the Pass-a-Loutre Wildlife Management Area in the lower Mississippi River Delta.

This week on the Coastal News Roundup: An update on the bug destroying the bird’s foot marsh, some research from the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science conference and the environmental consequences of glitter.
