This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a large partnership project to restore sand dunes across England and Wales for the benefit of people, communities and wildlife. The Dynamic Dunescapes project will deliver a range of conservation and engagement activities focused on nine dune systems across England and Wales over the next four years. Natural England is leading the project, working together with Plantlife, National Trust, Natural Resources Wales and The Wildlife Trusts.

There are nine key project areas:

  • Lincolnshire Sand Hills
  • Studland Dunes
  • North Cornwall Dunes
  • Braunton Burrows
  • Swansea Neath Port Talbot
  • Carmarthen
  • Anglesey - Gwynedd
  • Sefton Coast
  • Cumbria

These are some of the most important dune complexes in England and Wales. The project will deliver exciting and innovative capital works and introduce effective sustainable habitat management integrated with large scale public engagement work, including citizen science. Collectively this project will have a big impact both for conservation and local communities and will provide transferable learning across all dune sites.
