How should we protect our coastlines?

Posted on April 25, 2024

Coastlines around the world are changing, causing serious problems for the many communities living near the sea. In the second of two programmes on coastal erosion, CrowdScience explores the best ways to tackle this problem.

As we heard in the first programme, listener Anne from sees trucks dumping sand on the beach near her Florida home. We dig into this effective but expensive strategy to restore beaches by replenishing the beach with imported sand.

And in Puerto Rico, we hear about the importance of natural ecosystems, both on and offshore, in combating the power of the sea. CrowdScience joins in with restoration efforts, discovering that such work not only benefits vital and fragile habitats, but protects local communities too.
