About the Trust

The Chagos Conservation Trust - US is a fully registered US 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, set up to support the ongoing protection of the Chagos Archipelago. Recently designated as a Marine Protected Area, it is time for humanity to honor this pledge to conservation. The Chagos Conservation Trust - US is working tirelessly towards this goal.

The Chagos Conservation Trust - US was established to:

Ensure the protection of the Chagos Archipelago coral atolls in the Indian Ocean by preservation of the natural diversity of plant and animal species through the prevention of environmental degradation and destruction.

Our mission is to extend the goals of theĀ Chagos Conservation Trust (CCT), a charitable trust based in Britain, to the United States by promoting conservation, science, education and historical research in relation to the Chagos Archipelago.
