The Chagos Conservation Trust is devoted to researching, maintaining and restoring this breath-taking ecosystem for plant and animal life. It is the work of many dedicated campaigners and experts.

The CCT brings together scientists, conservationists and environmental campaigners, who are devoted to conserving and researching the reefs, as well as other animal and plant life. We also collaborate with a number of recognised global environmental organisations, sharing new approaches and making sure that we are restoring the archipelago responsibly.

The Chagos Archipelago is a precious environment located in the Indian Ocean, and we work closely with the British Indian Ocean Territory Administration to ensure that any research or conservation activity is responsible, and contributes to maintaining the archipelago for many years to come.

We routinely work with many different groups to study the archipelago and restore its natural biodiversity.

In 2008 we led a network of conservation organisations that made up the Chagos Environment Network.

The CEN was formed to ensure that the globally-important natural environment of the Chagos Archipelago was conserved. It was a leading voice behind the campaign to establish the archipelago as a protected marine reserve in 2010.

We also work closely with Chagos Conservation Trust US. Their mission is to extend the goals of the CCT to the United States by promoting conservation, science, education and historical research in relation to the Chagos Archipelago. CCT-US is a fully registered US 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.
