On a local level, the site was a dedicated visitor landmark even during the era of commercial whaling operations at the site. The initiative to preserve and develop the Whale World site has been an ongoing process, first embarked upon by John Bell with the establishment of a small Museum on the site in 1974. In 1980 after The Jaycees Community Foundation Inc. leased the site they announced an extensive self-funded program of restoration and development was announced.
Since that time, the site has been the subject of a number of studies and submissions, which have contributed to the development of the Whale World complex.
