Royal Gazette: Public to explore conservation in Bermuda

Preserving and protecting the island’s native and endemic flora will be the focus of conservationist Myles Darrell’s presentation during Roche Science week activities in early February.

Bermuda College, which is hosting the talk, noted that the island’s conservationist efforts dated back to 400 years ago and had expanded to embrace a vast array of categories, including water issues, solid waste disposal, sewage disposal, automobile issues and overfishing.

Mr Darrell’s undergraduate studies have focused on contextualised environmental science learning. He also received a post graduate degree from Waikato University in New Zealand, allowing him to teach secondary science.

Mr Darrell was also a recipient of the 2023 Bermudian of the Year award for his dedication to the local environmental community.

For almost five years, Mr Darrell has also been the head of natural heritage at the Bermuda National Trust.

The free lecture will be held on February 7 from 6.30 to 8pm in the Athene lecture theatre, H100, at Bermuda College.
