The shared mission of Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo and the Bermuda Zoological Society is to inspire appreciation and care of island environments.
We fulfill our mission through our animal habitat exhibits, which focus on species from oceanic islands, as well as related environmental education, conservation projects and research programmes.
Bermuda Zoological Society is the major support charity for Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo.
It funds community outreach projects and public events, award-winning exhibits, world-class animal care, plus top-ranked education, conservation and research programmes—all accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA).
With the support of 4,000-plus members, BZS is committed to encouraging future generations to become stewards of the natural world. Environmental education is provided for thousands of children annually through the BZS Schools Programme, along with marine and terrestrial field trips, holiday camps and WILD encounters led by knowledgeable BZS educators.
The BZS research and outreach vessel, Endurance, is a floating classroom for conservation education. Our year-long Junior Volunteer programme allows teenagers to get hands-on weekend work experience at BAMZ; many have gone on to pursue careers in science, research and related fields.
BZS supports ground-breaking research—on marine turtles, skinks, coral reefs, frogs and toads—by our own team of scientists.We share important data worldwide, and participate in international projects critical to preserving fragile endemic species and endangered habitats. BZS is proud of making a world of difference—by connecting people to conservation.
