The unique sand dune gives shelter to both man and animals. The Dunes supply a place for animals to live and to thrive and they shelter people from Coastal waves during storms. Flowers grow on the dunes that may have difficulty in other places and animals and insects are able to live and hide from predators in the Sand Dunes, this frail accumulation of sand and brush can be washed away in a barrage of bad weather along with the inhabitants.
Walking along the Coast people listen to the sound of the waves as they roll over the sands but little thought is given to the tiny animals taking up residence in the Costal Sand Dunes. Pick any coastal region in the world and Sand Dunes will be there with their developing eco world but if more attention is not given to the world's beaches will they remain.
