Cahows make news in Britain
Bermuda’s efforts to resurrect the endangered cahow have been highlighted this week in Britain.
Saturday’s edition of The Times newspaper featured an article by Jim Dixon showcasing the success of the cahow conservation programme.
He wrote: “Conservation biologists David Wingate and Jeremy Madeiros have spent 70 years monitoring the birds, constructing artificial burrows and coaxing the population up to a few hundred.
“Their greatest achievement has been to re-establish a colony on the large Nonsuch Island, where the birds burrow naturally into soil without the artificial intervention of concrete tunnels.”
He added that along with about 4,000 students who have ventured to Nonsuch Island to learn about the cahow, a growing number of birdwatchers have begun to visit the island to catch a glimpse.
