Seeking Volunteers For Reef Mapping Project

September 12, 2015

Royal Bermuda Regiment divers are to join forces with an environmental watchdog to help protect the Island’s reef system.

And the Regiment and the Bermuda Reef Ecosystem Analysis and Monitoring Programme [BREAM] appealed for volunteer divers and snorkelers to join them in a major reef mapping programme at Elbow Beach in Paget on Sunday.

The Regiment’s Lieutenant Gordon Emmerson said that event-specific equipment would be provided, but that volunteers should bring their own snorkel or diving gear and underwater cameras.

He added, “It’s a major event and promises to be fun for all the family with a barbeque lunch and refreshments organised by the Regiment on sale.”

Lt Emmerson said, “We welcome public participation in the very valuable event that will help guarantee the health of Bermuda’s unique reef system for future generations.”

And he added, “I would like to thank Dr Thaddeus Murdoch of BREAM for all his guidance and the effort he has put into the project. We hope we can find more events in the community to support in the future.”

The reef mapping day runs from 10am to 4pm on Sunday. For more information visit here.
