Purpose of group: Russell Land Care Group has been working with local residents at Long Beach in the Bay of Islands to restore the foredunes along the beach front.
About the group: Spinifex, pingao, wiwi and other native plants have planted around existing patches of spinifex and temporary fencing put in to protect the plants from people walking on and off the beach. Sand-ladders have also been put in to improve access down to the beach and reduce erosion.
