A chalk sign on the wall, and little plants dotted on the damaged dunes - people have been at work.
Written on the wall - "find us on (f)acebook - Lyall Bay Coast Care" ....
"Dune Planting - Please Keep Off The Plants."
A number of community groups work to protect the coastal environment, taking action such as clearing rubbish and caring for wanted plants. Lyall Bay Coast Care got into action with replanting really quickly - the pole for the rope barrier is still fallen, but there are little flax and rush plants dotted on the recently bared sand. Maybe they will hold the sand more firmly than the lovely golden pingao, which looks somewhat battered, with roots exposed.
