In 1926 The Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo (BAMZ) was established by the Bermuda Government to enhance a growing tourism industry. Since that time the Aquarium has become a leader in environmental education and conservation. The efforts of two support agencies, the Bermuda Zoological Society (BZS) and the Atlantic Conservation Partnership (ACP) were critical to this evolution. BAMZ became a fully accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in 1993, winning four prestigious awards, and rapidly earning a reputation for excellence.

The shared mission of BAMZ, BZS and ACP is “to inspire appreciation and care of island environments.” We fulfil our mission through our animal habitat exhibits, which focus on species from oceanic islands, as well as related conservation, education and research programmes

Bermuda is located in the Atlantic Ocean about 700 miles east of the United States coast. BAMZ is located near the geographic centre of Bermuda in Flatts Village.

Bermuda Zoological Society In 1978 came the formation of the Bermuda Zoological Society (BZS). With a membership of 15% of all Bermuda residents, the BZS is one of the largest and most respected organizations in the community

Personal and corporate members, donors and volunteers are the heart of the BZS, offering generous support that enables us to fulfil our mission.

The goal of the BZS is to enhance the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo for the benefit of Bermuda, its residents and visitors. The Bermuda Government provides continuous support of the physical plant and operational needs, while the BZS, a not-for-profit organisation supports the development, education and research programmes at BAMZ, and organises special exhibits and activities for the community.
