How will the Sanctuary be sustained long-term?
The Sanctuary’s business model has two key elements. The first is to minimise overheads through having only a small staff, making full use of training programmes and volunteers and working in partnership with other organisations. The second is to create a year-round attraction with a range of accommodation opportunities to suit the widest possible range of visitors. A special element planned is the construction of a low-impact lodge in the interior of the site where visitors would be met by a guide who would cook their meals and take them on a night-time tour. They would then wake up to a dawn chorus currently only experienced on some remote offshore islands.
