In order to honour their grandparents, the family of the late Wakefield and Mildred Trott recently embarked on their own fundraising campaign in order to make a donation of $2,000 to the Bermuda Zoological Society.
“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.”
After celebrating the family’s 2013 reunion, the family decided to donate the remaining funds to the Bermuda Zoological Society.

The funds are being divided, with half going towards the animal enrichment fund at the zoo, and the other to be designated for scholarships for needy students attending Aqua Camp, BZS summer programme. These needy students are selected based on recommendations from school teachers, who nominate students they believe would enjoy and be helped by the camps, but otherwise might not be able to attend.
Dr. Ian Walker, Principal Curator, shared: “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.”
