Mass Extinction Monitoring Observatory (MEMO)


Growth Deal funding up to £1,000,000
Awarded to MEMO

Local Growth Funding has been allocated to develop a unique tourist attraction in a mine on Portland. “The Journey” is expected to tell of the evolution of life on earth, its survival and extinctions, and the human relationship with natural world.

The project is the result of a unique new partnership between MEMO, Albion Stone (mining experts and main contractor) and the Eden Project (content development and site operator).

MEMO is an educational charity whose mission is to inspire wonder in the planet’s biodiversity, both past and present, as a way to engage the public in biodiversity loss.
