Conservation groups air Louisiana land loss Super Bowl ad

January 31, 2019

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A group of conservation organizations fighting Louisiana’s coastal erosion problems is taking their message to the Super Bowl.

Restore the Mississippi River Delta is a coalition made up of five environmental groups — the Environmental Defense Fund, National Audubon Society, National Wildlife Federation, Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana and the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation.

They’re showing a commercial during the Super Bowl that draws attention to coastal erosion.

The 30-second spot features various children from across south Louisiana speaking about land loss.

The ad will air Sunday in the New Orleans area during the game.

But Saints fans boycotting the game over their anger at the no-call during the NFC championship can catch it for an additional six weeks on the CBS affiliate.
