Beach scrub and coastal vine thickets provide a degree of protection to coastal communities and associated infrastructure. The vegetation also provides food resources, shade and nesting sites for resident fauna and migratory species. The beach scrubs and coastal vine thickets also provide important recreational areas for activities such as camping, walking and picnicking; providing psychological benefits to local communities and other users. The ecosystem services also confer ‘climate adaptation services’ that may be derived from the “capability of ecosystems to moderate and adapt to climate change and variability”.
