Dr. Melissa Baustian joins Shea on this episode of the season to tell us about the diverse coastal habitats within the Southern Louisiana Region to give us a sense of the changes that have occurred over the past century.

Shea also asks Melissa, who is a resident of the area, about her optimism in the region as a scientist and a resident.
