This project restored beach, dune, and marsh habitat within the Terrebonne Basin barrier shoreline system with restoration work on West Belle Headland, Timbalier Island, and Trinity-East Island. The project created and/or nourished approximately 1,257 acres of marsh, dune and beach using approximately 9.2 million cubic yards of sediment. This includes restoration of over seven miles of shoreline. Sand will be dredged from an area commonly known as Ship Shoal through a lease agreement with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). The project is funded through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF).
