Building Conservation Trust

Building Conservation Trust:

In 2010, Shell Oil Company announced that it would provide $1.5 million in funding over three years to the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) habitat program. In 2013, the Building Conservation Trust (BCT) was officially created as CCA’s national habitat program. BCT has created a model for the successful collaboration of businesses, non-profit organizations and government agencies to revitalize critical habitat and establish a vibrant foundation for the marine ecosystem. The grassroots-driven projects achieve one or more of five key objectives: restore degraded habitats; create new habitats; advance the science of coastal habitat restoration and marine fisheries conservation; foster habitat stewardship; and educate coastal communities of the value of conservation. Shell Oil Company continues to support Building Conservation Trust’s habitat projects through its ongoing partnership.
