What We Do
We are responsible for the maintenance and management of the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, in partnership with the support charity, Bermuda Zoological Society.
We work closely with the Department of Planning and provide advice on how best to prevent and minimize the environmental impact of new developments.
We provide the expertise and capacity to develop environmental policy for the Government of Bermuda.
We lead the Government of Bermuda's efforts to manage certain pests and invasive plant species impacting Bermuda's delicate ecology
Our Marine Management section is responsible for carrying out the mandate of the Historic Wrecks Act 2001. We provide advice and assistance to the Historic Wreck Authority, as well as developing and implementing underwater cultural resources management programs, specifically for shipwrecks and marine heritage sites.
Our Terrestrial Conservation Section manages over 200 acres of Government owned nature reserves.
We offer a number of different services to the public, including the removal of feral birds (chickens, pigeons and crows), rehabilitation of injured wildlife and educational services via our Natural History Library.
We have been involved in and supported numerous research projects, the results of which influence legislation and policy.
Through monitoring and research, we develop species recovery plans for Bermuda's protected species.
