1. 2 main issues the loss of sand occurs. the beach becomes narrow & lower in elevation. also threatens coastal properties and infrastructure, such as roads, homes, and businesses. 2.these have a negative effect on beaches because once sea water reaches them it bounces of them with more energy than a wave washing back off a normal sand beach. 3. the coast has all the beach erosions.4. sea turtles are the most affected wildlife towards beach erosions. 5.


6. no beacause we are not close to ocean 7. YES! because people in houses by beach there house colapses . 8.a beach erodes because the supply of sand to the beach can not keep up with the loss of sand to the sea. 9. would gather sand on the updrift side of the wall because the sea wall isn't strong enough.10. an Idea I have is just to stay away from the ocean like don't live by it and avoid swimming it. if that's not a good then just keep doing what they do and fix their houses when they collapse.
