Vanguard Cave gets shoreline defence from the sea

Shoreline defences are being placed at Vanguard Cave in a bid to protect the UNESCO World Heritage Site from the medium-term threat of sea levels rising due to climate change.

The defences consist of gabions, cage-like structures filled with rocks and used to absorb the impact of waves before they break on the shoreline.

The placement is part of the Gibraltar’s Government commitment to the UNESCO site and it is hoped that the gabions will protect the sensitive archaeological deposits from the action of waves during storms.
