HELM, Charles W. et al. Protecting and preserving South African aeolianite surfaces from graffiti. Koedoe [online]. 2021, vol.63, n.1, pp.1-5. ISSN 2071-0771.

Pleistocene aeolianite surfaces on the South African coastline, which occur in national parks, other protected areas, as well as unprotected areas, are of profound scientific, cultural, palaeoenvironmental and heritage importance. A threat is posed to these surfaces by the increasing presence of graffiti, which may deface or destroy fossil tracksites and other evidence of events that transpired on these surfaces when they were composed of unconsolidated sand tens of thousands of years ago. Increased awareness of the importance of this heritage resource is desirable, along with the development of strategies to prevent further damage.

Palabras clave : protected areas; management; Pleistocene; conservation; graffiti.
