Virtual walk around Bermuda wetlands 2022

Today is World Wetlands Day, with the United Nations noting that “World Wetlands Day, celebrated annually on 2 February, aims to raise global awareness about the vital role of wetlands for people and planet.”

While Bermuda seeks to preserve most our wetlands, not all places do, and according to Ramsar’s Global Outlook on a worldwide scale “wetlands are our most threatened ecosystem, disappearing three times faster than forests” with “35% loss globally since 1970.”

You can take a look back at the first four parts of the five-part series here, each providing a look a specific area by incorporating photos, immersive 360 tours, and more.

The video is, literally, a’ virtual walk,’ meaning it will just show the various areas without any commentary, with the footage showing most of the seven ‘Wetlands of International Importance’ in Bermuda, which include Lover’s Lake, Pembroke Marsh East, Hungry Bay, Paget Marsh, Spittal Pond, Somerset Long Bay Pond, and Warwick Pond. For actual information on the wetlands view our series here or view here on DENR’s website.

The video will get underway at 8.00pm
