Bermuda is a self-governing British Overseas Territory, which means the Brits are responsible for the country’s defence and foreign relations. Superstitions about the country and its offshore Bermuda Triangle first arose in the early 1500s when Spanish sailors reported hearing thousands of screaming babies near the shore each day at dusk. Rumours soon spread that the coast was inhabited by devils and witches. It turns out the devils were in fact Bermuda petrels or Cahow, that breed in huge colonies along the shoreline.

Though the Cahow were responsible to delaying Spanish invasion by about 60 years, the birds eventually fell prey to rats that came ashore from the Spanish ships and were thought to be extinct for 330 years. They were rediscovered at Castle Harbour in 1951 and through a careful breeding program that has lasted decades there are now over 100 breeding pairs in the wild.
