Jurassica

As a past Geography and Geology student at Southampton University, I was really excited to see the news about Jurassica. Geology is a passion of mine, and I have to say something I do not really do enough of, except to admire the geology of the South West on a South West Coastpath walk or out gig rowing.

Jurassica is a really inspirational project to build a spectacular subterranean geological park in a disused quarry on the Isle of Portland in Dorset to celebrate the unique geological heritage of the Jurassic coast. Jurassica will not be a theme park nor a museum but a place where the world of 140 million years ago comes to life. Visitors will learn and be amazed as they travel back in time down a double-helix spiral walkway, look out onto a Jurassic beach, and see dinosaurs swimming in an aquarium.

Jurassica’s patron is Sir David Attenborough, and its board of trustees includes Tim Smit, the founder of the Eden Project in Cornwall. Preliminary designs have been provided by Renzo Piano, the architect of the Shard in London and the Pompidou Centre in Paris. It has further backing from WithersArupOliver Wyman, the Wessex Entrepreneurs, and David Lazenby and Azeurus Design.

I know from all my time spent on the Isle of Portland during the bid for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games that this place is really very special and has a longstanding cultural and sporting heritage. I have included a photo of me flying the giant kite on the Island to support the bid for the London 2012 Games as the Island is home to the internationally famous Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy that hosted the sailing for the London 2012 Games.

With Tim Smit’s track record at the Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project and the supporting team this is a once in lifetime opportunity to develop a project of global importance. Lets get behind this and go for it!
