The last two months have been busy here at Greenrock, with much of March focused on Earth Hour 2017, while the end of March and early April saw our focus here at Greenrock turn to the large gasoline spill at Ferry Reach.

We have also continued to develop our environmental education programmes, with highlights being the holding of an Eco-Expo hosted by HSBC in the lead up to Earth Day 2017 and a number of our Young Reporters for the Environment seeing their articles published.

April has seen Greenrock participate in the initial consultation phase of the Government’s development of a new Fuels Act, and we will continue to participate in this process to put forward a vision of a low carbon Bermuda.

May sees the start of the America’s Cup in Bermuda, and we are hopeful that it will also mark a focus on greater marine sustainability in Bermuda, our marine environment facing threats of climate change (such as rising sea levels and ocean acidification), critically low populations of large predatory fish, the lionfish invasion and competing interests between fisheries, tourism, development, recreation and energy.

Excitingly, Greenrock is one of the beneficiaries of the XL-Catlin End-to-End event this year, and we hope that all of our supporters register and participate in the event this year!
