Tribute to Colin Callender, QC

Sep 18, 2015

Colin CallenderBREEF mourns the passing of Board Member Colin Callender on December 6th, 2015.

Colin was a founding member of BREEF in 1993 and has served on the Board since then.

His early work with BREEF Chairman Sir Nicholas Nuttall (read more) to promote the protection of the iconic Nassau grouper during the winter spawning season led to the closed season amendment of the fisheries regulations in 2015- an achievement for which will help guarantee the future of this species in perpetuity. (Read more)

His insight, dedication to marine conservation and boundless humour and grace guarantees him a permanent place in our hearts.  We extend our condolences to his wife, Sherill, his children and other family members.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, 16th December at 3pm at Christ Church Cathedral in Nassau, Bahamas.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that any donations be made to BREEF.
