Representative Penny Chatham, travels with her family to the Gulf Coast to inspect restored coastal habitats that have significantly increased wild oysters, shrimp, and blue crabs. It took water wars along the Louisiana and Mississippi Coasts in order for that to evolve.
Along with concern for the nation's degraded coastal edges, Representative Chatham supports reducing carbon emissions that cause climate change. A powerful group of business leaders fear her shift away from dependence on fossil fuels is a threat to the nation's economy.
On the journey from New Orleans, Louisiana through Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and beyond the Gulf Coast to a remote barrier island, the Chatham family experiences more than kayaking through illustrious salt marshes, fishing offshore grass beds, and searching for remote island wildlife!
