Dune Vegetation Regeneration
What is the aim?
Bungan Beach, situated between Mona Vale and Newport, Â is backed by dunes and littoral rainforest. Beach dunes are fragile environments. High tides, storms surges, illegal clearing, inappropriate plantings, trampling, and other depredatory uses all contributed to a widespread loss of the original vegetation on this Â beach.
The Foundation has been supporting the Friends of Bungan Beach to undertake bush regeneration along the dunes and rainforest since 2007.
Who funds it?
The Foundationâ€™s work continuing on this project has been supported by a yearly donation from a private Pittwater resident. This ongoing contribution, a strong indicator of community support, has attracted further grant funds. Other private donations for this project could add to the successes already achieved.
Can I help?
‘There are many ways to help. Bequests and donations remain our primary source of funding. Becoming part of a bushcare group on site or joining in the community planting days are another way of contributing directly to the success of this project. Finally, simply appreciating the work by enjoying a walk or birdwatching through this bushland is a great start to supporting the work and the benefits for us all.
