A recent walk along the Belongil estuary revealed a damaged road, complete with infrastructure hanging from an eroded dune. The erosion of dunes in the estuary is of deep concern. While every effort appears to be occurring in human comfort and public relations concerning this site, the greatest concern remains – the rapidly eroding dunes in the estuary.

This will be further ensured with the impact of more tourists. Much dune has disappeared since the No Club Med campaign. This requires the most urgent attention.
