This Act protects marine plants and animals within the two preserve areas, the South Shore Coral Reef Preserve and the North Shore Coral Reef Preserve. It is an offence to remove, damage or be in possession of plants or animals, whether alive or dead, which are attached to the coast, the sea-bed or any reef in the two areas. These two areas encompass most of Bermuda’s fringing reef. Most charters will provide a guide but it is vital that divers never disturb any artifacts on the wrecks or attempt to take anything off of the wrecks as a souvenir – it’s illegal. Divers can however, bring underwater cameras for breathtaking photos. Divers also have a unique opportunity to be part of the region’s history by reporting any finds of great value or historical importance which are to be reported to the Captain who will contact the Wrecks Conservation Officer in Bermuda and ensure that you are credited for the discovery.
