Busy Weekend at Cooper's Island (reposted)

Last weekend was a very busy one at Cooper's Island Nature Reserve, with many volunteers contributing hours of service to help promote and conserve biodiversity.

On Friday the 17th 80 young football players and coaches from the Bermuda Brazillian Football School joined HSBC bank and staff from the Department of Conservation Services to plant native and endemic plants throughout the Cooper's Island Reserve.


On Saturday the 18th a dozen volunteers from the Bermuda Audubon Society prepared 32 Longtail 'igloos' for use. These artificial nest chambers are styrofoam domes that must be coated to give them strength before they can be cemented into place along Bermuda's shoreline.
