Stop the engines, facilities, nifty oceanfront homes, paved parking lots, piers, and our modern world creaks to a halt. But the wheels and and rocky erosion control features. This is a constructed wings of powered transport aren’t the only necessity. Res- barrier that seemingly eliminates any hope of natural habi- toration of ecological structure can also serve to advance, tat migration.
