TONIGHT at 9p - A look at Coastal Restoration by Children - Sprouting Defenses

Each year, Louisiana loses 25-35 square miles of its coast, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Since 1932, the state has shed more than 1,900 square miles, or an area the size of Delaware.

Make sure to watch their inspiring efforts tonight at 9p on FOX 8 News.
