This project was funded on 23 Jul 2021!

This project proposes to build a curved wildlife viewing platform on the Tobermory coast, for people to immerse themselves into nature. There will also be 10 telescopes installed along the platform that people can use free of charge to enjoy the oceanic wildlife from the land. This aims to encourage people to spend more time outdoors engaging with nature and allows people who can't get out on a boat to see whales to still experience them in their natural habitat.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install 10 telescopes
  • Build a curved viewing platform
  • Install educational signs on local wildlife

Why it's a great idea:

Benefits: - Space for locals to come and enjoy scenery/wildlife. - Space for individuals who prefer to experience ocean wildlife from the land - New tourist attraction, boosting local economy - Educational spot for school trips - Bringing people closer to nature

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the telescopes
  • Installing telescopes
  • Installing viewing platform
  • Installing educational signposts
  • Promoting new space to community
