UK officials get closer look at environmental programmes
Bermuda’s marine conservation got an up-close viewing by British officials as Paul Candler, director of the Overseas Territories directorate in the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, called on the island.
Mr Candler was accompanied on the visit by Sheak Hussain, FCDO desk officer for Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.
The two joined the Governor, Rena Lalgie, and home affairs minister Walter Roban, for a tour of Bermuda’s waterways with officials from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
Mr Roban said the excursion showcased the work of the DENR with “Bermuda Ocean Prosperity Programme and other environmental groups” to restore, preserve and protect the marine environment.
