Vision: ‘To develop ecotourism on Tasmania’s East Coast by borrowing from and working within ecological, cultural and sustainable systems, to enable people TO CONNECT WITH NATURE’.
My name is Alexis Perez and I am a local resident from Dolphin Sands. I have had the honour of being able to create this wonderful venture of Moulting Lagoon Eco Tours (MLET). The vision of MLET is ‘To connect people with nature' and to encourage them for a moment to be present and to enjoy life! I have travelled and lived around the world and Moulting Lagoon is one of the most wonderful places that I have seen.
The vision was developed after a kayaking trip around the lagoon in the spring of 2017. I thought to myself; ‘I need to create something that will allow people to share this magical place without compromising the environment’. That is why I developed a self-sufficient electric boat powered by solar energy, because it does not pollute the environment and we can be respectful about it.
I believe most health problems that humans experience these days is because they are less in touch with nature. I have developed MLET to help bring people closer to nature because, in my opinion, it will lead to a better, happier, richer, healthier and more connected life.
Moulting Lagoon Eco Tours advocates a sustainable and harmonious connection with nature. I want to demonstrate that people, fauna and flora can live together sustainably if we respect, protect, enjoy and love nature.
My dream is that each person after this wilderness tour, feels inspired by nature and goes back to their ‘day to day life’ feeling happy and positive and thankful to be on this wonderful planet.
MLET project came to fruition and open for business in December 2018 with a public opening on 21st of December.
