Bermuda Ferns

Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium’s plant laboratory was involved in the conservation, eco-rehabilitation and bio-technology transfer to government personnel of two endemic Bermuda fern, one of which is Bermuda’s most endangered species and has not been seen in the wild since 1905.

Ex-situ propagation was carried out for both fern species and thousands were returned to their native habitat. More reintroductions are in Bermuda are planned for 2014.
