Special | 10m 28s | Video has closed captioning.

Decades of oil and gas infrastructure projects in Louisiana’s Atchafalaya Basin have recklessly altered the flow of water across the wetland, forcing crawfishermen working in the Basin to ask hard questions about the lack of permit enforcement. Development of the Bayou Bridge pipeline brings the fishermen’s concerns into sharp focus in an effort to save the Atchafalaya and their way of life.
