Nature’s recovering! Plants sprout on Golden Bay dunes after months of protection
It’s safe to say the rangers’ hard work has finally paid off.

Man’s relationship with nature is rather simple. If we treat it well, it will return the favour – but if we don’t, then we’re in for a very bad time.

The situation with Golden Bay’s gorgeous sand dunes is a perfect example of this.

Up until a couple of years ago, relentless human interference was leading to the quick eradication of these natural wonders and the amazing flora that was growing in the area.

That’s why recently, not only was this area fenced off, but rangers from the Majjistral Nature and History Park committed to monitoring the dunes day and night to ensure that no one tramples on them.

And yesterday, the park’s team took to social media to share some awesome news for nature lovers!

“Today the rangers visited the sand dunes for their regular clearing of litter, and they noticed that Sea Daffodils are sprouting and spreading all over the dunes,” the park wrote on social media.

“Yes, all the small green sprouts you see are new plants which will be seen in bloom next season,” it continued.

So, after months of constant close care, it’s safe to say that the rangers’ hard work has finally paid off.

Next time you’re in the area, make sure to do your part in protecting the vulnerable dunes by refraining from trampling on them, using the bins to dispose of litter, and using the public convenience facilities available at the car park.

“Also, a reminder that it’s illegal to pick the wildflowers on site. Leave them for the pollinators and enable them to bloom so seed dispersal can take place,” the park concluded.

Keep it up guys!
