Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program habitat restoration coordinator Matt Benoit demonstrates how to plant black mangrove and matrimony vine seedlings during the first volunteer planting on Queen Bess Island, La., Friday, Nov. 13, 2020. After Louisiana officials finished restoring 37-acre Queen Bess Island in February, much of the vegetation planted on its small footprint of newly pumped sand didn’t have time to take root before more than 6,000 brown pelicans arrived for breeding season. The birds pulled up some sprouts to use in their nests. (Halle Parker/The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate via AP)
