Birling Gap beach in East Sussex: a coastline to cherish

Our coast is under threat

Our members and supporters of the Neptune Coastline Campaign have been protecting the coast for 50 years.

But membership fees only cover a third of the cost of caring for this precious landscape – every mile of coast costs us £3,000 to maintain. Extreme weather and climate change also mean extra care is needed.

Give today and help to preserve the rugged beauty of the coast, so it can be accessed, enjoyed and cherished by future generations.

How you can help

  • £15 could buy 38 marram grass plants to stabilise natural dune defences - working with natural processes to protect the coast from extreme weather
  • £25 could enable us to create a metre of wildlife trail around flower-rich dunes and meadows
  • £65 could build a metre of wear-resistant footpath, enabling new coastal paths to open, or repairing those damaged by storms
