Invasive Species Management
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources leads the Government effort to manage certain pests and invasive plant species that have an impact on Bermuda’s delicate ecology. This includes the management of feral chickens, feral pigeons, crows, red eared sliders terrapins and rats (only in protected nature reserves).
Our Terrestrial Conservation team focuses on invasive plant species management. The spread of highly invasive plant species is a serious threat to Bermuda's biodiversity, as these faster growing species push out our slower growing native and endemic species.
