Who Are We?

The Chagos Conservation Trust – US (CCT-US) is a charitable 501(c)(3) registered organization with the United States Internal Revenue Service.  CCT-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.

Our mission is to extend the goals of Chagos Conservation Trust (UK) to the United States in promoting conservation, science and education in relation to the Chagos Archipelago

Increasing scientific, management and enforcement work in the Chagos protected area is essential to maximize the conservation gains. This work can only be achieved through the support of people who care about the future of this magnificent place.
