Explore Bermuda's Habitats

Bermuda’s position (32.31ºN, 64.77ºW) is substantially north of the subtropics but the island’s climate is mild, thanks to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream and the Sargasso Sea. As a result, Bermuda supports extensive coral reefs formed by tropical or subtropical corals, meadows of tropical seagrasses, and small mangrove swamps. These habitats are all globally important, being the northern-most in the Atlantic Ocean. Bermuda’s caves are also of significant importance as they are home to many endemic animals, with new species still being discovered. Learn more about Bermuda's geography here.
