This week on Behind The Lens, as the Clean Water Act turns 51, environmental advocates scramble to understand a new judicial interpretation that leaves more than half of the country’s 118 million acres of wetlands unprotected, including the swamps of Acadiana and key waterfowl habitat.
Louisiana’s inland, non-tidal wetlands are most at risk to lose protections from weakened Clean Water Act.
Our guests this week are Lens reporter Delaney Dryfoos and managing editor Katy Reckdahl.
