Audubon Nature Reserves

The Bermuda Audubon Society was the first conservation organisation on the island incorporated specifically to acquire land for nature reserves. Since 1963 the Society has acquired 16 nature reserves totalling over 60 acres, by purchase, gift, bequest and lease. Only the Government and Bermuda National Trust hold more land in Bermuda.

Since 1972 the Society has undertaken major restoration on some of these reserves, including the rehabilitation of several marshlands and ponds which had been filled as garbage dump sites in the early part of the 20th century. Woodland management through culling of invasive species and planting of natives and endemics is ongoing in many reserves.

In 2004 the Society collaborated with the Bermuda National Trust to form the Buy Back Bermuda Campaign, which raises money to buy precious remaining open space to save it from development. To date, three parcels of land have been saved in perpetuity through this effort: Somerset Long Bay East, Vesey Reserve and Eve's Pond Nature Reserve. The Buy Back Bermuda committee can be contacted via Bermuda Audubon Society.
