We need more chestnut fencing to help protect the dunes from human impacts.
Chestnut fencing helps stabilise the dune allowing marram grass to recover, especially in areas where humans and animals have been on the dunes.
The fencing makes the dunes more resistant to wind and wave action, therefore helping to protect the coastline and the ecosystem.
Each metre of chestnut fencing costs €20. We are trying to raise €5,000 to complete 500 metres of fencing, which will be used in some of the most vulnerable parts of our dunes.
The chestnut fencing will assist access to the beach and prevent people from climbing on the dunes in areas of high human activity.
