Collaborations

The Trust collaborates with other environmental and scientific organisations in a variety of ways, ranging from purchasing open space to environmental advocacy and project-based collaborations.  
Buy Back Bermuda

Buy Back Bermuda is a joint initiative by the Bermuda National Trust and the Bermuda Audubon Society to purchase precious open space to preserve it from development in perpetuity.  

The passage of time and development pressures have seen our island’s legacy of natural open space come under threat. The Buy Back Bermuda campaign was launched to preserve the island we all love. Funds are raised from the Bermuda public, the corporate sector and charitable foundations. Buy Back Bermuda nature reserves are open to the public for all to enjoy. To learn more, visit the Buy Back Bermuda website. 

Please make a donation today. Future generations will be indebted to you for your foresight and generosity.

 

Bermuda Marine Debris Taskforce

Formed in 2011, the Bermuda Marine Debris Taskforce is a coalition of scientific and environmental organizations with the following goals:

  1. To promote awareness of the impact of marine debris on Bermuda, oceans, coastlines and marine life
  2. To assess the quantity of marine debris, including tar, stranding on Bermuda’s coastline and beaches
  3. To develop advocacy initiatives to reduce Bermuda’s contribution to the marine debris problem

The Bermuda National Trust is a member of the Marine Debris Taskforce, along with a variety of other local organisations including Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce, the Bermuda Turtle Project, Keep Bermuda Beautiful, Greenrock, the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Science, the Bermuda Aquarium Museum & Zoo, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and others. For more information on the Taskforce, including how to participate in upcoming cleanups and projects, visit the Marine Debris Taskforce Facebook page.

 

Bermuda Alliance for Sargasso Sea (BASS)

in 2012 ten local non-governmental and environmental groups collaborated to raise awareness on the island about the importance of protecting the Sargasso Sea.

Through scientific research, education and community outreach, the Bermuda Alliance for Sargasso Sea (BASS) aims to support efforts by the Sargasso Sea Alliance led by the Bermuda government to establish the Sargasso Sea as a high-seas marine protected area (MPA).

BASS members include the Atlantic Conservation Partnership, the Bermuda Institute for Ocean Science (BIOS), the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI), the Bermuda National Trust, the Bermuda Audubon Society, Greenrock, the Bermuda Sloop Foundation, the National Museum of Bermuda, the Look-Bermuda Education Foundation, and the Bermuda Zoological Society (BZS).
