How you can help?

Protecting the Sand Dunes
Sand dunes are vital to the survival of beaches and protect homes and habitats further inshore from salt spray and sand. Beaches, with their associated sand banks and sand dunes, are coastal shock absorbers, diffusing the impact of ocean waves. The sand dunes are part of the natural cycle of shore protection and the plants and animals that live on them contribute to this dynamic process.

Threats to the sand dunes

  • Development occurring within the dunes
  • Introduction of exotic plants and weeds that invade and displace natives pests, like rabbits and possums, eating native dune grasses
  • Vehicles, motorbikes or dune buggies
  • Foot traffic and ‘dune surfing’
  • Construction of seawalls and other structures that interfere with natural coastal processes.

How to prevent damage to the sand dunes?

  • Use the walkways down to the beach instead of walking over the dunes
  • Leave the Beach Litter Free by putting your rubbish in the bin
  • Keep your Vehicle off the beach to prevent damage to Dunes as well as nesting of Coastal birds
  • Have your dog on a leash when on the beach to keep them from running through the dunes and to stop the disturbance of the birds etc, follow the dog rules
