The Levenmouth Whale Project was the brainchild of Levenmouth councillor Graham Ritchie and Helen Ritchie. Levenmouth is an area which has suffered from deprivation for decades. Despite some success, numerous small regeneration projects have failed to reverse its decline. With the coming of the railway and the River Leven Project, the stage is set to create an unmissable visitor destination in the heart of the town.
Graham launched his idea at a well-attended public meeting in April 2019 with extensive publicity in the print and broadcast media. The project was greeted with massive support from residents, businesses, community councils, politicians and the third sector.
Consequently, a company with a board of directors and an action committee were formed to take the project forward.
The Levenmouth Whale Project has adopted the Social Enterprise model to take the project forward. The group was officially incorporated on the 24th December 2019, registering with Companies House. Our company number is sc650244. Details of our company is available publicly on Companies House.
We are always looking for support to take the project forward, and we welcome any contribution, big or small, that helps us develop this ambitious project for the Levenmouth area. If you would like to volunteer with us please contact us, or you can sign our petition of support, or have a direct say in the project by becoming a member.
In 2018 there has been a surge of whale sightings in the Firth of Forth including humpbacks, minke, orcas and sperm whales.
Shorewatch have established a whale-watching base at Kinghorn, and will expand to Pittenweem. There are already 18 whale-watching bases established across Scotland
