Today, the world’s largest fully ‘no take’ marine reserve - the British Indian Ocean Territory (Chagos) Marine Protected Area - is three years old.
Today, four Trustees of the Chagos Conservation Trust (CCT) are leaving to join an international team of scientists on board a research ship in the Chagos Islands.
The team will be studying marine and island wildlife in the world’s biggest no-take marine reserve. Their work will help develop vital monitoring techniques for the effective management of this globally important ecosystem.
