Your donation and support for our project means that our crowdfunder campaign has been a huge success!

With your generosity we have raised a massive £21,822!

We have been overwhelmed by the support and the success of the crowdfunder is a huge steppingstone for the project and we would like to express our wholehearted gratitude.

We are now one step closer to helping conserve Yorkshire’s lobster populations, promoting Yorkshire’s fishing communities and provide inspiring education and research.

While we still have some way to go before we can start releasing juvenile lobster and before we open our doors, we are confident that with the continued support from people like you the hatchery will be a huge hit!
