Resumen

A trial study of foredune restoration on El Inglés beach (Gran Canaria, Spain) was carried out between July 2018 and December 2019 as part of the MASDUNAS program of the Gran Canaria Island Council. Among the objectives of this project was the replacement of sand from the tip of La Bajeta to the El Ingles beach, the installation of sand collectors and the reintroduction of specimens of Traganum moquinii that act as generators of new mound dunes in the foredune. This study presents results, extracted from the scientific monitoring of the project, on the efficiency of the sand collectors and the evolution of the planted specimens of T. moquinii. The knowledge gained from this trail study is key to improving and adapting the coastal dune restoration procedure in arid systems.
