New film looks at the effort to repopulate Nonsuch Island

Half a century of Herculean effort to increase the perilously small numbers of Bermuda's endemic cahow has culminated in this project's most remarkable achievement relocating a colony of the species to the safety of higher ground onto the island of Nonsuch in Castle Harbour.

Tonight a film entitled 'Higher Ground the Cahow Translocation Project' will be launched, focusing on this unique management programme designed by Conservation Office Jeremy Madeiros to save Bermuda's national bird, and to safeguard its future.

JP Rouja of LookBermuda, the media company which produced Higher Ground the Cahow Translocation Project, said: “The film follows the work of the translocation project between 2005 and 2010 as the team move chicks from the crumbling outlying islands and create a new and secure nesting colony on the island of Nonsuch.”

The film, the making of which was supported by Hannover Life Re, Butterfield and Vallis, the Audubon Society and BZS, will be broadcast on LookTV Cable Vision channel 001, online at LookBermuda.com and as an interactive curriculum asset through the LookBermuda Educational Media Foundation for the Public, Private and Home Schools.

It is showing Thursday evening at BUEI, for VIPs, Sponsors and Educators.

Anyone that has not received an invitation and is interested should send an email via the form on LookBermuda.com so that we can advise if there is space available for tomorrow night or for future screenings.

Bermuda Government Conservation Officer Jeremy Madeiros
