About this grant

Louisiana’s freshwater systems foster abundant and diverse wildlife, while also serving as important economic and social assets for human communities. The Tulane Environmental Law Clinic, a program of Tulane University, works to protect and restore these critical freshwater resources. With prior Mott support, the clinic partnered with community and environmental groups to clean up mercury contamination, reduce sewage pollution, and protect wetlands. With this grant increase, the clinic will continue its water quality and wetlands protection efforts by providing policy, legal, and technical assistance to partners; encouraging public engagement; and responding to community needs related to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
