Please help me save Restoration Island! I'm seeking donations to buy out the owner of the head lease so I can set up an Eco-Resort and Wellness Retreat on the island. If we reach our goal the island will eventually be returned to the aboriginal people of Lockhart River.

I appeared in Ben Fogle's TV documentary "New Lives In The Wild" on Chanel 5

The donations go directly to me, and I'm grateful for your help.

Can you describe the economics of creating an eco-resort? How will the $500K be used? Do you see it as a hostel or high end resort? Will there be local people evolvement/experience?

Hi Dave, I have just watched the documentary by Ben Fogle about you, Quasi and Restoration Island and just wonder how you are doing with your efforts to stay on the island. Best wishes, Jane, County Kerry, Southwest Ireland (I live in the sticks too!!)
