Flamingo flockings are over
After a month of flockings, the Bermuda Zoological Societys pink plastic flamingos are returning to their storage roost until next year.
The fundraiser brought in almost $10,000 through more than 80 flockings across the Island throughout June.
Governor George Fergusson launched this years campaign with a flocking on the Government House front lawn on June 1. For the rest of the month, individuals and companies surprised friends and colleagues by having the flock of pink plastic flamingos planted in yards, offices and building lobbies.
Money raised during the campaign supports conservation education classes at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo. These programmes provide classes, field trips, camps and marine expeditions to more than 6,000 students annually.
BZS development director Lynda Johnson said: We hope we didnt ruffle too many feathers, but this years Flamingo Flocking campaign was a great success.
Thank you to everyone who participated — we look forward to another fantastic flocking season next year!
