The first time
visiting the dunes was quite an experience. None of us had ever been to the dunes
before and it was an astounding site. The area had a vast array of different
species and organisms coexisting in peace.
from the large key stone species such as the pine trees, to smaller but still
equally important organisms such as the lichens and insect living in the wood
of dead branches.
The area was a
division between established forest, drifting sands and the pioneer communities
of early stage succession.
