Recovery of the dunes in the Gulf of Lacona

The colours of the flowers on the dunes of Lacona, in the municipality of Capoliveri, will be more striking than ever, now that work has begun on the regeneration of certain areas and to protect the dunes from the strong storm surges. Protective barriers along the edges facilitate the natural recovery of the parts most exposed to the waves. The beach lilies and trumpet flowers are no longer suffocated by the Hottentot fig, a newly eradicated alien plant, and no longer grow in the shadow of the Indian fig, another non-native species.
