Goldsborough is the proposed home for the eco-attraction, Lure Wildlife Nature Park.
During Wednesday’s post Executive Council media briefing, Secretary of Food Production, Forestry and Fisheries, Hayden Spencer, indicated a feasibility study was ongoing for the project.
The nature park will incorporate the indigenous landscape and will encompass 140 acres of the Lure Estate.
The feasibility study is being undertaken by a consortium of contractors including Katalyst Solutions Ltd (TnT), ChirrpoConsultores, S.A. (Costa Rica), and Green LAC Consulting Group, Inc. (Panama).
“This project is to increase biodiversity conservation and wise use of our wildlife and natural resources, provide additional revenue directly to the economy of Tobago, and generate new employment opportunities via six cross sector linkages including, agro tourism, adventure tourism, biodiversity conservation, eco-tourism, cultural heritage tourism and research tourism,” Spencer said, at the conference room of the Division of Tourism, Culture and Transportation.
Spencer said the wildlife park will be the only “facility of its kind” in the English-speaking Caribbean.
