Envirotalk Newsletter

Envirotalk is the newsletter of the Bermuda Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). It is published quarterly, both in print and online. Envirotalk allows the staff of the DENR to share stories about the work that we do, interesting findings from our research, and to provide information that the public have requested. If you have an idea for an Envirotalk story, or would like to subscribe (or unsubscribe) to the email distribution list, please email the Envirotalk Committee at envirotalk@gov.bm .
