Our tribe struck off to see our favorite beach in the National Seashore yesterday. We have avoided the area since Hurricane Sally took its toll, but decided that it was finally time we went and surveyed the area first hand. This beach really took the brunt of the storm, but we were happy to see many signs of resilience. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of the big dunes were down, but many did their job well. Oliver had some very tough questions about why the landscape was so different. This really opened up a conversation about the importance of a diverse thriving coastal ecosystem.
Though fragile in nature sand dunes provide natural coastal protection against storm surge. When in pristine condition they form a natural barrier against powerful waves and wind storms. They also have a very important dual purpose of providing a very important ecological habitat for all of our beach friends. Friends like the beach mouse, nesting birds, and even crabby ole sand crabs. It is extremely important that we protect them and educate all beachgoers about their roll.
