Save Ocean Beach

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

Sand levels have recovered well, and at the time of writing this update, access to the beach is available at all points. Sand levels on the beach are being monitored regularly, and will be augmented on an "as required" basis over the summer.

Ocean Beach is also proving popular with New Zealand Sea Lions, and a number of these animals are frequenting the beach from time to time. Advisory signs (with an outline of recommended behaviour around sea lions) are now in place.
