Royal Gazette: Environmentalists welcome springtime events

The first day of spring was welcomed yesterday by green groups across the island.

Speakers from five environmental advocacy groups met at the Bermuda National Trust’s Waterville property in Pembroke to share their events planned for the change in seasons.

Glenn Fubler, of Imagine Bermuda, welcomed the warmer weather and encouraged people to take this time to appreciate nature.

He added: “We can all take advantage of a hug from the sun, and pass on that warmth to our neighbour, to a friend or even to people that we don’t know.”

Karla Lacey, the executive director of the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, said that the institute would celebrate World Water Day tomorrow with a symposium for senior schools and Bermuda College.

The annual celebration carries the theme “Water for peace”, which emphasises the human right of clean water and how better sanitation could lead to less conflict over resources.

The symposium will be followed by an open house on Saturday that will be held in tandem with the BUEI’s monthly Kid’s Hour.
