The Coastal Sand Dune Rehabilitation Project is an ongoing project contributing to the maintenance, restoration, and enhancement of the coastal dune system and Biodiversity Park on LeFevre Peninsula.

This is a volunteer led initiative of the Semaphore Largs Dunes Group, Taperoo Dunes Group, Friends of North Haven Sand Dunes, Port Adelaide Resident’s Environment Protection Group (PAREPG).
