This is a chance to see the second rarest seabird on the planet and Bermuda’s single most important nature reserve. Bermuda’s Conservation Officer, Jeremy Madeiros, will show visitors around Nonsuch Island where the critically endangered Bermuda Petrel or “Cahow” is being nurtured – having been rediscovered after 300+ years of being considered to be “extinct”. The chicks should be almost a month old at this time and at their most endearing, fluffy stage of development. Nonsuch Island is one of the earliest examples of ecological restoration to be found anywhere, where a project to restore an entire ecosystem, with all its associated plant and animal communities in their appropriate habitats, has been underway for more than 50 years.
