Y3 Day 212, Sand Dune Restoration

August Scavenger Challenge 4. The theme is protecting wildlife. Show an example of wildlife conservation in your area.

 

This is the seaward side of Ngatitoa Domain, where the channel that links both arms of the Porirua harbour opens out into the Tasman sea. And waaay back when I was a teenager we used to be allowed to play all over these dunes. Back then they were pretty bare - great for sun bathing ! Then in my 20's the City Council put up a big ring fence and did heaps of planting. So here we are some 20 years on, and the fruits of their labour is before you.

 

Is that a seal further along ???? Surely not ???
