Natural Resources Management



In the 1980’s, LAWA began restoring the LAX Dunes, which comprise of 307 acres of coastal sand dunes located on the western portion of the airport. The LAX Dunes are home to over 900 species of native flora and fauna, including the federally endangered El Segundo Blue Butterfly (ESBB), and sensitive species such as the Southern California Legless Lizard and San Diego Horned Lizard.
