Dune restoration (Kenfig, Bridgend)

Kenfig in Wales is a rare fragment of the huge dune habitats that once stretched along the coast of Southern Wales.

Plantlife, in partnership with Countryside Council for Wales and Bridgend Council, is trying to turn back the clocks - restoring an area of these dunes to the state many will remember when they were a kid: shifting hills of golden sand and wispy marram grass, home to a variety of wonderful wild flowers, including the fen orchid - 50% of whose UK population can be found at Kenfig alone.


A very generous consortium of Countryside Council for Wales, Environment Wales, Million Ponds Project/Biffa Award, and of course, the Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation who are supporting our sand dune project overall.
