Louisiana Sea Grant (LSG) has launched a redesign of its website – www.laseagrant.org.
“One objective for the redesign was to make our website serve as a virtual Extension agent,” said Robert Twilley, LSG executive director. “We want visitors to find the information they’re looking for in a quick and intuitive way, just as if they were working with an Extension agent, and I think we’ve accomplished the first step in that process.”
Louisiana Sea Grant has operated a family of websites since the program first went online about 15 years ago. Along with the programmatic umbrella site (www.laseagrant.org), there also are separate Education, Fisheries and Law & Policy websites.
With this redesign, the Law & Policy site is incorporated into www.laseagrant.org and that department’s website has been decommissioned. Education and Fisheries websites will be incorporated into the new site over the coming months, with all Louisiana Sea Grant online content being exclusively available at www.laseagrant.org in the near future.
Since its establishment in 1968, Louisiana Sea Grant has worked to promote stewardship of the state’s coastal resources through a combination of research, education and outreach programs critical to the cultural, economic and environmental health of Louisiana’s coastal zone. Louisiana Sea Grant, based at Louisiana State University, is part of the National Sea Grant College Program, a network of 33 university-based programs in each of the U.S. coastal and Great Lakes states and Puerto Rico.
