Bermuda's Island Treasure

Step back in time to pre-colonial Bermuda on Nonsuch Island. This once-barren island was restored by one man, David Wingate, who planted 8,000 native trees and shrubs in order to create a suitable habitat for one of the rarest seabirds in the world, the Bermuda Petrel or Cahow. Nonsuch Island is now a refuge for all of Bermuda’s natve flora and fauna.

THE BIRD
Bermuda’s legendary seabird, the Cahow, was thought to be extinct for over 300 years. It was rediscovered in 1951 on a few rocky islets where miraculusly it survived undetected over the centuries. See the Cahow, filmed for the very first time, return to Nonsuch Island.

This the story of how one man can save a species and how habitat can be restored.
