Cooper's Island

This 77 acre island is part of a chain that makes up Bermuda. Located in St. George's parish... it is now joined to St. David's island thanks to reclamation work.

United States Government agencies relinquished the island in 1995. Before this date the island was occupied by and property of US Army, US Air Force and US Navy which also included a NASA space tracking system.

The entire world population of Endangered Bermuda Petrel or Cahow birds nests within 1km of Cooper's Island.

Work has began for the island to be converted into a nature reserve. Here are a few shots from the area

Coming soon: A conceptual documentary look into the remaining buildings/island before they are gone forever.
