Last week, 17 Artex employees and their family members participated in a charitable event in partnership with the Bermuda Zoological Society [BZS] – a registered Bermuda charity that supports the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo.

In 2015 BZS purchased a 2.4 acre lot on Trunk Island, in Harrington Sound, with plans to create an outdoor classroom for schoolchildren and adults. This “living classroom” highlights conservation and the environment, and all classes for Bermuda’s students on Trunk Island are free of charge. BZS also uses the island for overnight camps, educational workshops and nature encounters.

The island’s restoration is still underway, as teams work to clear it of invasive plants and replace endemics. The afternoon of December 9, the Artex team worked together to cull and remove invasive Brazilian Pepper Trees, aiding in the restoration of the island.

“Thank you to the team from Artex for all their hard work during their corporate day of giving out on Trunk Island”, said Colin Brown, President of the Bermuda Zoological Society.

“It is with this kind of support that we can continue to work towards our goal of returning the island to its native and endemic state, in order to preserve it for future generations.”

“Artex has been part of the Bermuda community for 20 years and we’re proud to support its continual development. The conservation of our island and the ability to teach both children and adults to understand and respect what makes us unique is a privilege. We’re so happy that we have the chance to give back to our local community,” said Robert Eastham, Managing Director-Bermuda.
