Save Ocean Beach

The natural and physical resources of Ocean beach and its adjacent City Dunedin are under threat and you can help!

After reporting on 4th August's massive hunk out of Middle beach over the last week, I made it down to the sports fields to take some images from the top. The erosion is now well into the downward side of the dune and would be only metres away from the edge of the sports ground.

Above right: the dumped sand from the harbour over the edge of Moana Rua Road continues to slump and fall to the beach below to be washed away.

Above: Looking towards St Clair with Moana Rua Road a few Metres at my back.
Below:The mixture of sand and rock reinstated at the base of the sausage buffer see here has been reduced to a pile of rocks.

Above left: again the rocks remains, right: forgot to put up from the 4th, a view from the Hot Saltwater Pool.
