Louisiana Is Paying $6 for Every Swamp Rodent You Can Kill.” This 7-minute video was prepared and published by Myles Andrews-Duve and Dexter Thomas of Vice News 10 March 2020. It focused on Louisiana’s nutria control program. I appeared at the beginning and end of that video. I think this video is excellent but incomplete because it omits why Louisiana’s nutria control program has succeeded. However, it probably would be more complete but less effective if it had included an hour of me lecturing. See - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AladRZv_pAo&feature=youtu.be

Crevasse.” This 6-minute video was prepared by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. It focused on a 30-year old wetland restoration project and won the “Best Scenery” category in the film festival associated with the 2019 Biennial Conference of the Coastal Estuarine Research Federation. My position is that I am the scenery responsible for that award but other interpretations are possible. See - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrLavoXe0rI

Workshop for Coastal Wetland Wildlife Managers.” This two-minute video was prepared by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries about a 2018 workshop that I organized for wetland wildlife managers from throughout the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.

The Next Big One.” This 10-minute video was prepared by Chris Mooney and Whitney Shefte of the Washington Post and published 21 August 2015. It focused on controversies regarding costs and benefits of large-scale use of the Mississippi River to create new wetlands in coastal Louisiana. Portions of my interview appear sporadically throughout the video.

2014

"Pass A Loutre Field Trip" This 8-minute video was prepared by Austin Mouton when he was an undergraduate enrolled in RNR 3108 (Case Studies in Habitat Restoration). Students enrolled in this class generally spend spring breaks visiting restoration projects at the Pass A Loutre WMA. This year, the students also helped construct exclosures designed to reveal the effects of herbivory on wetland vegetation. The photos below reveal the otherwise hidden effects of one year of regular, background herbivory. See - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8RrftuqKj8
