Environment & Conservation
- Last Updated: Tuesday, 20 September 2016 11:36
Conserving our environmental heritage and preserving the Island’s quality of life for now and for future generations is central to the Trust’s Mission.
The Trust plays a leading role in environmental stewardship in Bermuda, owning more than 250 acres of open space. Many of these areas are made accessible to the public for recreation and education, including Warwick Pond, Paget Marsh, Spittal Pond, Gladys Morrell Nature Reserve and Gilbert Nature Reserve. For responsible development of property by individuals or businesses, the Trust is supportive of the Bermuda Plan 2008 Planning Statement and the City of Hamilton Plan 2015.
Through collaborative efforts with the Government Departments of Conservation Services, Environmental Protection, Parks and Environmental Health, as well as the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, Bermuda Audubon Society and Keep Bermuda Beautiful, the Trust’s Environmental Conservation Office works on environmental projects, public programmes and issues of concern to the local community to determine the best course of action.
The Trust’s Environmental and Marine Environmental Committees meet frequently on environmental issues and determine appropriate actions for the Trust. These Committees work for the protection of the environment through advocacy, research, education, conservation and information sharing.
Lend a Hand
Volunteer for the Trust's Conservation Programme. We are planning volunteer days aimed at protecting Bermuda’s environment by working on the Trust’s precious nature reserves. Help protect these natural resources by removing invasive species, planting native flora, grass sowing, landscaping and picking up litter.
