Berrow Downs management scheme commenced in 1992 and part of the dunes was subsequently designated a Local Nature Reserve in 1993and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Some of the management work has involved cutting down large quantities of mainly Sea Buckthorn scrub and then treating the remains with an approved herbicide to limit their regrowth. Since its introduction less than fifty years ago, the Sea Buckthorn has spread out over about half the reserve, leading to the loss of much of the species-rich grassland habitat
