The Netherlands
In 2011, as part of the coastal management and maintenance of the coastline, a peninsula -the so called Sand Motor- was created between Ter Heijde and Kijkduin (Province South-Holland), where natural beaches and dunes are relatively narrow. A volume of 21 million cubic meters of sand covers an area of 128 hectare. As a protection against the sea, the Dutch beaches along the coast are artificially replenished every five years, and it is expected that the sand engine will make replenishment in the wide environment between Hoek van Holland and Scheveningen unnecessary for the next 20 years. This method is expected to be more cost effective and also helps nature by reducing the repeated disruption caused by replenishment. The sand gradually spreads north and south under the influence of wind, waves and currents. As a result, the area has increasingly resembled the dynamic coastal nature as we know it from the Wadden Islands. Various plants, birds and other animals have nestled in the new coastal landscape. The area also has great recreational value for nature lovers and active sportsmen. Because of the international attention, the final conference, after 10 years of the Sand Motor, will be combined in 2021 with the conference of Coastal Dynamics.

The Netherlands-Bakkum-Noord
Late afternoon view on Zeerijdtsdijkje, a relatively intact inner dune border fed by seepage water from the nearby younger and higher dunes. The aim of land manager Landschap Noord-Holland was to renovate this area -a part of the so called Clean Water Valley- by improving the flow of the seepage. And also by creating a more natural water management; the water being held in wintertime, as a buffer for the increasingly frequent summer droughts. Furthermore the overmanured upper soil layer was excavated in favor of the poor soil underneath and thus in favor of rare plant species and biodiversity as a whole. The area is accessible for walkers, but not during the breeding season. The name of this area refers to an old, modest dike that was dug off long ago. What remained is a grassy path (on the right side of this image, next to the private properties. Far away in the background the village Limmen.
