Brief Overview

The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization working to drive bold, science-based action to rebuild Coastal Louisiana through advocacy, restoration, and outreach. CRCL unites business leaders, scientists, landowners, national and local conservation groups, government agencies, hunters, anglers, and a broad spectrum of concerned citizens to advance restoration for the benefit of people and nature. CRCL is seeking energetic and driven students to join our Student Ambassador program to help build support for coastal restoration by spreading CRCL’s mission and work throughout the coast. Students will represent CRCL at various festivals, events, and forums. Students will also get the opportunity to participate in on-the-ground coastal restoration events throughout Louisiana.
