Orana the fossa, a popular creature at the Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo (BAMZ), had her enclosure dedicated to a reinsurance company who helped fund her home.
A fossa is a member of the mongoose family hailing from Madagascar, and is a “top predator” according to a press release from the Bermuda Zoological Society (BZS).
“With her long tail, intense stare and agile antics, Orana has proven very popular with BAMZ visitors, including school students who learn about the environmental challenges facing fragile island environments through the Madagascar Exhibit,” explained the society.
BZS decided to honour RennaissanceRe for a “generous capital campaign gift” by dedicating part of the exhibit to the company.
Company CEO Neill Currie said: “RenaissanceRe is committed to Bermuda and supporting organisations that improve the quality of life for everyone on our Island.
“The Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo is a place where Bermudians and visitors of all ages are educated and inspired to develop an appreciation of the fragile environment and unique wildlife around us.”
