Bermuda Zoological Society has received a $10,000 boost from Amlin Bermuda.
The funds will be used to promote coral reef research.
“We are delighted that Amlin Bermuda has chosen to support the Bermuda Zoological Society in our ongoing efforts to monitor the health of Bermuda’s coral reef systems and to promote reef conservation and research,” said BZS president Richard Winchell. “Bermuda’s coral reefs are not only unique, but their protection is also vital to continued efforts towards environmental protection and sustainable living on our shores.”
Although Bermuda’s coral reef system is in relatively good condition compared with that of other jurisdictions, the “vast majority are substantially altered” to what they were 40 years ago, a BZS spokeswoman said.
Said Lisa Finnerty of Amlin Bermuda: “We are delighted to support the BZS coral reef research project to an organisation that is dedicated to the environment in preserving and promoting sea life. It is rewarding to know we are contributing to the preservation of the beauty of our coral reefs.”
