In the Journey OnEarth film series, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Roshini Thinakaran, reports about the people most directly impacted by pollution, oil spills, and toxic chemicals, and communities coping with climate change across the U.S.

The newly released second episode takes a closer look at Louisiana’s mashes. Referred to as part of America’s hardest working wetlands, the marshes are breathtaking, but they are a natural treasure disappearing at an alarming rate. For this film, Roshini visits this unique ecosystem and examines the cost of losing a piece of our natural heritage.
