I have noticed in the last few years that the poly fibre bags being used to protect the back dunes of Byron’s beach are fraying. I wonder if small amounts of fibre are coming apart from the bags and floating out to sea, affecting wildlife in the bay. How environmentally friendly they are?
It would seem to me that using rock would be a more natural option to protect the dune, followed by bulldozing back sand onto the beach at low tide – when there are no pippies – as a good option to protect and restore the beach.
