Projects per year
Coastal and estuarine habitats are important and nowadays sensitive systems. Dykes have been built to harvest land from the sea, cities and ports were developed, sea-arms were dammed and beaches and dunes "flooded" with recreants. As a result, coastal birds that depend on temporary natural islands and sand and shell banks for their breeding colonies now suffer from a lack of breeding grounds. Harbours and port areas often include newly developed terrains which offer suitable areas for breeding and are relatively undisturbed by recreants.
