Dune repair and vegetation - beyondeyelevel
I intend this gallery to give a brief overview of dune repair and regeneration. It revolves around our observations and activities along the southern Wooli dune.  In areas this dune is sick, and as  result is unstable thus prone to sand slippage.  By my measurements since bad storms of 2009 about 12 feet has been lost from the top of the dune.  I am not sure if this is recoverable.  With sand fences we have re grown the foredune thus rebuilt a sand bank to buffer the main dune from wave impact.  We received no help from the Council to rebuild the lost dune in 2009, and again no help following the storms of 2016. If we have another event like these, then the dune top could be lost back to the property boundaries.   On this picture, this area of dune is in recovery mode.  Note  sticks of dead bitou.  There is persisting bitou and Singapore Daisy which will be progressively removed once new plants can go in.  Obvious sand slippage in areas devoid of plants.  Priority area for bandaid repair.
