Government restoring Louisiana's coastal wetlands

Monday, September 27, 2010 - 6:34pm

Wildlife crews are on a mission in the Gulf of Mexio to save the wetlands.

The endangered grounds are all getting attention from the White House.

Officials say an estimated 2,500 acres were converted into open water after Hurricane Katrina.

The water now mixed with the oil spill disaster has put the land in even more danger.

In celebrating National Public Lands Day Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar picked Big Branch Marsh to show the importance of restoring Louisiana's coastal wetlands.
