Bermuda Zoological Society have been given a $2,000 boost thanks to the generosity of the family of the late Wakefield and Mildred Trott.

Mr. Trott worked at BZS for some 40 years.

In honour of their grandparents, the family embarked on a fundraising campaign which raised $2,000 following a family reunion last year.

“This donation is given to the Bermuda Zoological Society in loving memory of our grandparents, Wakefield and Mildred Trott,” explained great granddaughter, Malika Watson. “Wakefield worked in the zoo at BAMZ from the early 1950s and gave 40 years of service to the facility and Bermuda before retiring.”

The funds are being divided, with half going toward the animal enrichment fund at the zoo and the other designated for scholarships for needy students attending Aqua Camp, BZS summer programme.

These students are selected based on recommendations from schoolteachers, who nominate those they believe would enjoy and be helped by the camps but otherwise might not be able to attend.

Dr. Ian Walker, Principal Curator, said: “I would like to thank the Trott family for their generosity and in continuing a great tradition of service to the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo.

“While I never knew Wakefield, there are staff here that worked with him and remember how well he maintained the animals and exhibits in the zoo, almost single-handed.

“It speaks volumes that his family chose to remember him in this special way and we are truly grateful.”
