Last week I asked a fence question today I have another thought about fences.
For most of us a day at the ocean is all about sun and fun in the water. We pass over sand dunes without much thought on our way to the beach. Sand dunes are an extension of the ocean this is where shoreline plants and animals live. Dunes are also a natural barrier between the sea and the land.
Coastal sand dunes and fences have a very close RELATIONSHIP. Natural occurrences such as tropical storms that can alter this area. One of the ways to protect sand dunes is to place sections of fence parallel to the shoreline to diminish loss of this precious land.
This photo was taken on the Atlantic Ocean coast in Florida and it shows how time has weathered these sections of fence blends in flawlessly with the natural habitat it is protecting.
