Species Recovery Plans

Our Wildlife Ecology and Biodiversity team lead our efforts to recover Bermuda's most threatened species. The department is mandated to develop and oversee the implementation of species recovery plans for the over 80 terrestrial and marine species currently protected by the Protected Species Act 2003. Much of this work is done in collaboration with local and international institutions under the umbrella 'Lifeboat Project', which focuses on artificial breeding and propagation of our most threatened species both locally and overseas. 

Below, you will find a list of recovery plans for the threatened species that we are currently focused on. Click on any of images below to download a PDF copy of their species recovery plan. Or click on the project summary link for a short one page flier summarizing the project.
