Coastal adaptation to benefit wildlife

In this article, the authors look at the increasing challenges that our coastal wildlife faces, and demonstrate how coastal habitats can be managed in ways that can benefit wildlife and prevent further declines. 

Britain’s low-lying coastline is one of our greatest wildlife assets but it faces increasing pressure from a range of threats, including climate change, rising sea levels, human development (including coastal defence) and impacts from recreation. Ground-nesting birds suffer additional problems owing to high densities of predators.
