Areas of sand dunes to the north and south of Skegness on the Lincolnshire coast were identified by the SPNR as 'worthy of preservation'. Unfortunately, in the intervening years some habitat has been lost to coastal erosion and development, but the establishment of Gibraltar Point nature reserve to the south of Skegness in 1948 has ensured that some of this area has remained protected. Gibraltar Point was the first nature reserve of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and was later designated as a National Nature Reserve. It is internationally recognized for its important habitats and species.
